Getting Better at Behavioral Assessment and Treatment

Presented by the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP)

Regardless of our role, we should all continuously strive to get “better” at supporting someone who may have behaviors that are challenging. This training will focus on ways that, within your role, you can ensure that the behavioral support you are providing is sound and appropriate. We will be offering two sessions, held across four locations that focus on the role you play in this process.

Session 1 (9:00 am – 12:00 pm) is for any professional (and their supervisors) who is trained to implement behavioral plans and who works directly with individuals. This session will present an introduction to the essential components of effective behavioral assessment and treatment.

Session 2 (1:00 pm – 4:30 pm) is for any Behavioral Specialist who completes behavioral assessments, develops behavioral plans, and trains others. This session will discuss ways to conduct better assessments and develop better behavioral support plans while acknowledging barriers and pitfalls to these processes.
