This is a powerpoint presentation that I prepared as a catch all for people working with children who show severe behaviors, with particular attention towards people with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The headings included in the presentation are:
- Motivational Assessment Scales
- Being Proactive
- Functional Communication
- Transitions (with visual examples)
- Prompt Hierarchy
- Task Variation
- First-Then vs. Bribes
- Hierarchy's of Reinforcement
- Calming Techniques
- How to Deal with Maladaptive Behaviors (fairly extensive)
- Teachable Moments
This presentation would be idea for small group Professional Development, parents or caregivers who are interested in a new way to look at things, teachers or new therapists who need to know some of the "basics" or anyone who deals with people on the Spectrum!
