Dr. Hanley, a nationally recognized speaker, will present a contemporary and trauma-assumed version of applied behavior analysis for consideration when working with students who engage in severe problem behavior. He will discuss the values at the forefront of this compassionate, collaborative ABA approach, which addresses behavior problems and increases cooperation in educational settings via a sequential, skill-building process.
This session is geared for personnel working with students with severe behavioral problems, severe acting out behaviors and Oppositional Defiant Disorders in district or center-based settings.
Through lecture, interactive discussion, and application exercises, attendees will learn about the latest iteration of assessment and teaching procedures. Dr. Hanley will emphasize strategies for maximizing the safety and dignity of the process, as well as for strengthening student-educator relationships. He will describe in detail the skill-building process, which consists of teaching students’ communication and toleration repertoires, and then to engage and persist with personally challenging tasks (e.g., academics, social skills activities).The presentation will also address several choice models for further minimizing risks and for meeting the needs of students with advanced language skills.
Individuals, Administrators, and building teams are all encouraged to attend and learn effective approaches to implement in their educational settings directly from Dr. Hanley!
