Presented by Professor Peter Sturmey
Behavioral and mental health practitioners, special education teachers, SLPs and child study team members often work with individuals with severe behavior problems such as aggression, tantrums, self-injury, pica and rumination. Although graduate classes provide some basic training, application to practice is challenging, even for experienced practitioners. The purpose of this webinar series is to provide advanced instruction and problem solving in developing, writing and using Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs), Behavior Support Plans (BSPs) and solving common challenges in implementation. The materials will be delivered by both lecture-type presentations and interactive on-line exercises. We encourage individuals to attend all sessions live so they can contribute throughout the series during the live discussions by commenting, sharing, and/or asking questions and receive feedback on their own performance in on-line exercises. The presenter will provide instruction on how to frame questions asked during this event in a confidential way and all questions will be entered in an anonymous chat box to provide an additional layer of privacy.
All webinars will be presented LIVE and Recorded. The recordings will open the day following the LIVE presentation and will remain open until 10 days following the last session (4/4/21). The course will able to be purchased thru the last session.
