Managing Problem Behavior and The Eight Essential Skills Conference
Online registration for Managing Problem Behavior and The Eight Essential Skills is OPEN!
If you are working with children or adults with disabilities who exhibit one or more problem behaviors, but do not exhibit The Essential Eight Skills: (1) making requests; (2) waiting; (3) accepting removals, making transitions, sharing, and taking turns; (4) following instructions to complete previously acquired tasks; (5) accepting “no”; (6) following directions related to health and safety; (7) completing daily living skills related to health and safety; and (8) tolerating situations related to health and safety…this workshop is for YOU!
The Essential Eight are skills which are essential for a happy, fulfilling and productive life. In the absence of these skills, children and adults are less likely to learn other skills, more likely to exhibit forms of problem behavior and less likely to have contact and interaction with the community in which they live. Learn function-based teaching protocols which include procedures designed to teach these skills and decrease the frequency of problem behaviors that tend to occur in their absence.
