Boot Camp: Intensive Training on ABA and Verbal Behavior Programming for Classroom Teams

July 09, 2019 at 8:00 am - July 11, 2019 at 3:30 pm

During this intensive, three-day boot camp, participants will receive hands on instruction and practice on key instructional protocols that are designed to address the core deficits of autism including the development of verbal skills, flexible responding and appropriate social interactions. Participants will be tested out on specific protocols, which will include errorless teaching, error correction procedures, and data collection. Boot camp training will also include information on specific systems necessary for effective school-based programming, including how to schedule instruction, organization of materials, ongoing training of staff and data-based decision making. While the intensive teaching program taught in this training is designed to meet the unique needs of learners on the autism spectrum, it is also beneficial for students who demonstrate negative behaviors due to a lack of functional language skills.
