High-Functioning Autism: Proven & Practical Interventions for Challenging Behaviors in Children, Adolescents, & Young Adults – Tucson
June 13, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm MST
This intensive, full day seminar provides proven intervention strategies, essential treatment tools, and behavioral techniques to help you analyze behaviors and actions, identify consequences for behaviors, and teach new skills to children, adolescents, and young adults with high-functioning autism (HFA). Walk away with practical intervention techniques for social success, behavior changes, and overcoming challenging co-occurring behaviors that deliver success through adulthood. The challenging co-occurring issues to be addressed are:
- Social and communication
- Psychotropic medications
Gain valuable insight into common psychotropic medications, including both the helpful effects and potentially problematic side-effects, that these individuals are prescribed. We will explore the advantage of pro-social punishment as a new idea to target and help make changes to difficult behaviors. You will receive the tools necessary to gain effective collaboration between clinicians, educators, and parents. Through case studies, video clips, and class participation, you will leave this seminar with the confidence to identify actions that cause impediments in change, utilize more successful consequences for behaviors, and teach new skills to children, adolescents, and young adults with HFA. Don’t just manage these individuals; provide interventions that lead to successful independence into their adult years!
