Summer Training Topics

Integrated Services for Children and Youth with Autism

August 24, 2017 - Full Day Keynote Presentation with Dr. Kathleen Quill

Presenter:

Kathleen Quill
Kathleen Quill, Ed.D., BCBA-D

The complexity of autism spectrum disorder requires coordinated care among family, school and community providers. The purpose of this workshop is to outline a framework for providing comprehensive supports in an integrated manner.

The educational fields of Applied Behavior Analysis, Positive Behavior Supports and RTI (Response to Intervention) will be discussed within a framework of Family-Centered Intervention Planning.
The workshop will explore three interrelated issues:

  1. How to use RTI in your school to address the needs of children and youth with autism
  2. How to apply evidence-based practices across home, school and community settings
  3. How to use Family-Centered Intervention Planning to coordinate home, school and community-based services for children and youth

The intervention model used in many urban public school settings in Eastern Massachusetts will be used as an example of “how to integrate services for children and youth with autism”

The workshop will consist of lecture, small group work and discussion. The goal is for participants to strengthen and expand their existing service models.

Who Should Attend?
This training is for all educators supporting individuals with ASD from K-12.

August 25 2017 - Concurrent Session 2

Geneva Centre Training Institute

Anxiety disorders are prevalent among individuals with autism; however, many ABA practitioners feel it is beyond their scope of practice. Anxiety can be difficult to observe and measure, so how do we use ABA principles to understand and treat it? In this full day workshop, participants will explore how to conceptualize anxiety from a behavioural analytic perspective and the implications for treatment in individuals with ASD.  In this session, participants will learn how ABA principles can be applied to conceptualize anxiety, understand the effects of private events and experiential avoidance on overt behaviours, and discuss practical and ethical implications for the assessment and treatment of anxiety in individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

We are offering simultaneous translation from English to French in this session.  Please indicate when registering whether the participant will require a headset for French translation.

Who Should Attend?
This training is for all educators supporting individuals with ASD from K-12.
