Presented by: Lisa Rowland & Sherry Lindsey
Hosted by: UF Gainesville CARD

Presenters for this series include several education professionals such as consultants, early intervention providers, exceptional student education (ESE) directors, school administrators, and teachers; all who have successfully included students with autism spectrum disorders in general education. The first session in the series begins with an overview of what inclusion is and why it is important. Other sessions address early intervention leading into preschool and an administrative team’s experience creating a culture of inclusion within their small school district. The final session culminates with a team of educators and an administrator who created a model for inclusion at their elementary school. All sessions are delivered online via Adobe Connect and contain a mixture of presentation and discussion. Individuals who participate in at LEAST TWO of the sessions receive a book by Paula Kluth full of practical strategies for inclusion.

A Function-Based Diagnostic Behavioral System: Addressing Problem & Replacement Behaviors

Friday, May 13, 2016 from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Presented by: Dr. Ennio Cipani
Hosted by: UCF CARD

This workshop will cover a new way of looking at Functional Behavior Assessment. Many people look first at the behavior and later at the function, leading to faulty functional hypotheses. Dr. Cipani will present a function-based diagnostic system for problem behaviors and associated assessment methods used for detecting function. A numerical four category diagnostic system for classifying problem behaviors as well as sub-categories identifying specific reinforcers under each category will be presented. A three category diagnostic system will be described for classifying replacement behaviors. The remainder of the workshop will cover functional assessment methods that involve a manipulation of variables to demonstrate function of behavior. These methods include analogue assessment tests, trigger analysis with behavioral description, and in-situ hypothesis tests.
