June 16 & 17, 2016

Click here to see the pdf with more details

We’ve been talking about Evidence Based Practices since Summer Institute started. This year we’ll focus on some of the most current thinking about EBPs – what they are; how to apply them and what they mean in terms of outcomes for individuals with ASD.

Here are a few of the topics to be presented this year:

  • A new assessment tool designed for NM classrooms
  • Social Communication issues and interventions
  • Self-management for students of all ages and support needs
  • From the IEP to the Lesson Plan
  • Functional Communication Training – Changing Problem Behaviors
  • Using the ABLLs (Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills)
  • Using the AFLS (Assessment of Functional Living Skills)

Don’t forget the always thought provoking Parent Panel and your opportunity to hear the latest information about Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Available slots for this popular, no cost conference fill up quickly! Teachers, SLPs, OTs, Social Workers, Assistants, Family members, School administrators, other members of school based teams are invited to join us for Summer Institute, 2016. CEUs are available for ancillary staff and BCBAs
