Teachers need to teach students and also manage a classroom. Teachers providing autism support services have multiple responsibilities. In addition to providing expert instruction they are frequently called on to organize and train a team of staff serving students. This session will focus on the use of applied behavior analysis through analyzing the research of Organizational Behavior Management and supply practical ways to apply the research in the classroom. Topics will include how to manage staff members, train staff members, and create a positive work environment through the use of positive reinforcement with the whole team as well as through setting goals, using encouragement, and team meetings to effectively impact change in the classroom.
