The Next Generation of ABA Therapy Techniques:
Moving beyond simple verbal operants towards complex language and cognition for children with autism.
Presented by Mark Dixon, BCBA-D Southern Illinois University
This presentation will introduce attendees to the power that behavioral science has for developing meaningful, robust generalizing repertoires for children with autism. Dr. Dixon will provide an overview of the PEAK Relational Training System – our field’s most empirically validated assessment and curriculum. All four PEAK modules will be discussed which include: programming for simple motor responses and language, social emotional comprehension, advanced generalization, stimulus equivalence, and relational framing. At the completion of this training you will be able to effectively use the PEAK assessments, understand the procedures for data collection and management when running ABA programs as well as use the treatment protocols to promote skill gains.
In addition, 6 CEUs will be provided!
Come join us to find out why PEAK has been called “essential knowledge for professionals in the area”!
