Updating Your ABA Tool Box – Beyond the Basics – A Free Full Day Conference


ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) is the scientific discipline from which the teaching strategies for students with autism are derived. ABA is considered the "gold standard" for teaching students with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) and other developmental disabilities. Yet, we so often hear that ABA is just not working for some of our students. This conference will address this important issue while focusing on teaching techniques and strategies that should be in your ABA Tool Box.  We will be covering:


  • Appropriate Assessment/Evaluation
  • Overview of Specific Assessment Tools
  • Creating Meaningful IEP Goals and Objectives
  • Evaluating ABA programs
  • Effective Teaching Strategies
  • Hands-on Teaching Techniques to Build Conversational Language

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance for Department of Education Professional Development Hours. Light breakfast is included. Lunch is on your own.
