1st Presentation on Applied Behavior Analysis

This training will be an introduction to Applied Behavior Analysis. We will present information about the basics of ABA, why individuals engage in behaviors (or why they don’t) and the beginning of how behavior can be increased, decreased or changed. Parents will be trained to use some simple tools to dig deeper into the reasons their child engages in behaviors of concern.

2nd Behavior Chat
Bring your questions and examples about challenging behavior to an informal discussion session with Dr. Meadan-Kaplansky and Linda Tortorelli. We will help walk you through the process of using ABA strategies to begin to understand why individuals engage in behaviors (or why they don’t) and discuss some strategies that can help improve your child’s behavior.
