Autism affects 1 out of 150 children today but understanding the most effective techniques to help can be confusing to many. How do you build language skills in children with autism? How do you decrease behavior problems? These are just some of the pressing questions parents and caregivers of children with autism face everyday.
Here is a two-day seminar that covers language and behavior problems. It is two day seminar organized by the Applied Behavior Consultants ABC Philippines.
“Building & Strengthening Language Skills & Managing Behavior Problems Through Applied Behavior Analysis” is a two day seminar by by Kerry Madden-Solliday, B.A., Robyn Matsumoto, M.A. and Hui Ling Loh, M.A., BCBA
Day 1: Building & Strengthening Language Skills-Using the Verbal Behavior approach to develop language
What is the most effective approach to building language skills? A good Verbal Behavior program is designed to teach your child the reasons behind the give and take that is so important in connecting with the social world. It is connecting your child with this natural societal reinforcement that will motivate him to make beneficial relationship and learning choices beyond the teaching setting. Verbal Behavior has moved Applied Behavior Analysis beyond the rote, repetitive, table learning of its past and developed it into a natural, relationship building, holistic learning program.
Day 2: Managing Behavior Problems and Excesses What behavior intervention can help manage behavior problems?
Certain behavioral interventions have been shown to be effective in decreasing aggression in children with autism. Doctors, therapists, and other autism health care providers can train and coach parents and other caregivers to use techniques that can help prevent or limit aggressive behavior that is related to autism.
