We all know that to learn a new behaviour it needs to be consistently reinforced, to change an old behaviour it needs to be consistently consequated, and to successfully have a positive impact on client outcomes we need everyone involved “on the same page”.
As a program supervisor, you frequently field questions and queries from junior therapists around intervention procedures that “just aren’t working”.
When working in a large team, with minimal chance for collaboration across multiple clients and settings, it’s hard to ensure everyone is doing the same thing.
People can misinterpret the written instruction and procedures can shift as the intervention goes on.
With multiple professionals, care-givers, and family members involved in each child’s life and intervention, it can become very difficult to manage the consistency and accuracy of procedures.
Woodbury Autism Education and Research has just completed a two-year research grant on the implementation of ABA within a classroom setting, focusing on the effective implementation of procedures by a general educator under the supervision of a certified behaviour analyst.
Attendance at this course will provide three Type-2 CEUs for Board-Certified Behaviour Analysts who attend.
With a limited number of certified behaviour analysts here in Australia, there is a necessity for dissemination of knowledge and hands-on training for the application of basic behaviour analytic tools.
This 3-hour course will provide attendees with an overview of our research project and findings.
Attendees will leave the training with a performance management checklist which can be individualised and adapted to assess the treatment integrity and procedural fidelity for behaviour analytic strategies implemented by general educators.
