Implementation Workshop

2018: Integrating Positive Behavior Supports with AAC (Durham, NC)

Description

Course Description:  Behavior is Communication. This workshop will discuss the relationship between challenging behaviors such as running away or hitting, and the communication needs of the individual using AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication). We will explore strategies to target positive behaviors using both visual and vocabulary supports integrated in the Snap + Core First software. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to customize, create and share supports within the software to help implement these strategies successfully in a variety of settings.

Learning Objectives: (1) Name one functional behavioral assessment tool. (2) Name two vocabulary strategies that provide replacement to a challenging behavior. (3) List three behavior supports that can be integrated into a high tech Augmentative and Alternative Communication device.
