Given the significant increase in the incidence of learners with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) over the past decade, most if not all school-based Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) will have students with ASD diagnoses on their caseload. Further, it has become increasingly common for behavior analysts to be members of the educational team.
As such, it is not only important that SLPs be able to collaborate effectively with all team members, but also use the strategies derived from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to strengthen our own treatment and assessment protocols. This presentation will provide an overview of ABA through exploration of the Pyramid Approach to Education. This unique, functional approach to ABA will give SLPs the tools and information for practical application of ABA to speech and language therapy.
This course is offered for 0.20 ASHA CEUs, which will be provided by PECS. Two OPI Renewal Units will also be provided.
