Instructor Lindsey Lowe, MA/BCBA
Date and Time Part II: March 28, 2017 (10 am-12 pm)
Location Applied Behavior Consultants, Inc. (Santa Clarita Office)
Number of Units Part II: 2 units
Course Description The training is designed to cover behavior excesses seen in typically developing populations (toddlers, preschoolers, school age children, and adolescents). Participants will be taught to compare baseline data from clients with a diagnosis of autism to baseline measures of a typically developing peer. This analysis will provide the behavior analyst a valuable tool in ensuring their behavior reduction goals are in line not only with improving the quality of life for the client, but also developmentally appropriate for his/her age range. Part I of the training specifically focuses on:
  • Behavior excesses displayed by typically developing preschoolers (aged 4-5), including frequency/intensity/duration measures as well as strategies for addressing these specific excess behaviors.
  • Behavior excesses displayed by typically developing school aged children (aged 6-9), including frequency/intensity/duration measures as well as strategies for addressing these specific excess behaviors.
  • Behavior excesses displayed by typically developing school aged children (aged 6-9), including frequency/intensity/duration measures as well as strategies for addressing these specific excess behaviors.
  • Behavior excesses displayed by typically developing teenagers (aged 13-19), including frequency/intensity/duration measures as well as strategies for addressing these specific excess behaviors.
  • Practice analysis using information from the training
