Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) provides us with many useful tools for addressing challenging behaviors in the classroom. Often the most effective interventions involve an interdisciplinary approach, which combines ABA with Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and more. This collaboration enables us to address the needs of the whole child. This webinar helped viewers:

  • Learn how to adapt an interdisciplinary approach to behavior
  • Understand how setting events and antecedents can trigger challenging behaviors
  • Maintain instructional control during meltdown moments
  • Balance de-escalation techniques with extinction and reinforcement procedures
