Price: $39.00

LEVEL: Advanced


How prevalent is severe problem behavior in people with autism and what we as professionals can do to facilitate the lessening of these behaviors to maximize learning and community participation? This webcast will focus on defining what severe problem behavior looks like, evidence-based treatments that have been successful to reduce different types of severe problem behavior, and discussion and case studies of effective and ineffective strategies. Some of the challenging behaviors this webcast will look at are:

• Pica
• Masturbation
• Severe assaultive behavior and aggression
• Severe self-injurious behavior
• Verbal threats, including suicidal ideation
• Other behaviors of concern

A large part of any behavior modification program is a good behavior support plan. This ensures that behavior change procedures are being conducted in an ethical and consistent fashion, no matter who is providing the service. This webcast will also explore how to write a clear and concise behavior support plan and what types of data should be collected as a behavior change strategy is implemented.

Other topics we will be discussing within this recorded webcast include:

• How can you tell if the behavior change strategy you are using is ineffective and what can you do about that?
• What research is being done on effective treatment for different types of severe problem behavior and what types of treatments have empirical evidence to show they are effective interventions?
• How can you utilize the function of severe problem behavior as a treatment strategy?
• Case examples and real clinical data that show treatments which were effective in practice as well as some that were not.

Upon completion of Severe Problem Behavior, participants will:

1. Understand what severe problem behavior looks like in a clinical setting and what treatments have shown some efficacy in reducing different types of challenging behavior.
2. Understand how to write a clear and concise behavior plan that addresses the target behavior, yet also serves as a guideline for behavior change for those who work with an individual with severe problem behavior.
3. Identify examples of severe problem behavior and some of the treatments that are effective in reducing problem behavior.
