Workshop 31 (ticket)
The Use of Individualized Positive Behavior Support Processes to Treat Serious Behaviors in Children and Adolescents With an Autism Spectrum Disorder

In recent years, there has been increasing documentation, supported by empirical research, of effective intervention practices for individuals with autism. This Workshop starts with an in-depth discussion of the essential steps in completing a data-based Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and the development of a Positive Behavior Support Plan (PBSP). Case studies illustrate reductions in dangerous behaviors following the implementation of a PBSP. Presentations cover: how medication use can be enhanced through the use of an interdisciplinary team approach; different program models for treating serious behaviors across school and residential settings; and case studies that illustrate these processes.
