Saturday November 16, 2019 - PM Workshop Option 2

NOTE: 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM

Assessment and Treatment of Challenging Behavior in the Classroom and Community

It is often the case that the top recommended practices for assessment and treatment of problem behavior are not appropriate or feasible to conduct in certain environments such as schools or community settings. Although the gold standard procedures may not be feasible, it is still critical that educators and behavior analysts are able to assess and treat challenging behavior efficiently in such settings. The purpose of this workshop is to provide alternative procedures to more traditional procedures such as the isolated functional analysis and extinction procedures commonly recommended.
