This 3-day workshop provides attendees with an overview of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and an in-depth approach to teaching young learners with ASD. Day 1 will provide an overview of Autism and Behavior Analysis. Days 2 and 3 will provide a more in-depth training of teaching procedures related to expanding a child’s verbal behavior. This will include hands-on rehearsal and practice amongst participants. This will allow participants to practice the strategies put forth, and the presenters will provide hands-on feedback.
It is highly recommended that you take days 2 and 3 together, even though you have the option of taking only one. If you choose to attend only one of the two, you will not be fully exposed to the scope of the training.
For those interested in becoming a Module 1-trained ABA early intervention provider in Nassau and/or Suffolk County, this three-day workshop will help prepare you for the examination. Therefore, if you are using this course in preparation for the exam, it is recommended that you attend all three dates. Day 1 is very introductory but important if you are taking the workshop to prepare for the Tier 1 / 2 examinations.
