Health and Safety Programs: ABA Procedures and Outcomes

Monday, August 6, 2018 -
1:00pm to 4:00pm

Health- and safety-related targets are important in programming for children and adults with autism. Swimming skills are an important target, as children with autism are at a higher risk of drowning than nondisabled peers. Other important targets include participating in dental exams, physical exams, blood draws, and EEGs. Applied behavior analysis offers an effective methodology for teaching these skills. Important procedures in teaching participation in the aforementioned activities will be presented.
