      Successful Approaches to Severe and Challenging Behavior: Strategies, Methods, and Skill-building Interventions that Work

      Richard M. Foxx, Ph.D., BCBA

       

      This workshop is designed for individuals involved in the education and treatment of persons with autism and developmental disabilities who displayed very severe and challenging behavior. The focus is on the design, implementation and evaluation of effective educational and treatment programs. Several case histories will be discussed that illustrate success with extremely challenging individuals who displayed aggression, self-injury, and destructive behavior. The workshop will also focus on the factors that influence the successful implementation of ABA in schools for students with autism.
