Moving Towards More Intention and Focused Implementarion of PPM 140: The Role of Practical Functional Behaviour Assessment

Dr. Kelly Boyko

PPM 140 states that school boards in Ontario must off er Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) strategies where appropriate, and that schools must incorporate ABA methods into programs for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The challenge now facing school boards is how to move from system implementation of PPM 140 to more intentional and focused integration of ABA methods into programming for students with ASD. One ABA method described is functional behaviour assessment (FBA), and this keynote will address the challenges of how to extend the type of FBA that is typically completed in clinical treatment settings into a practice that can be carried out in educational settings by school staff.

12:30pm - 1:30pm Lunch Break
1:30pm - 3:00pm Keynote 3

Learning for All is a resource guide that describes an integrated framework for assessment and instruction that supports the learning of all students.
