Free Online Learning - Now Thru June 30

with Sean Gorgie, MA, BCBA and Lauren Lloyd, MA, BCBA

Most individuals on the Autism Spectrum will experience challenging behaviors at some point in their development. All behavior happens for a reason and challenging behavior is no exception! To learn how to manage behaviors, we will learn the ABCs of behavior, identify the function of a behavior, and identify functional replacement behavior. Together, we will help add tools to your behavior management toolbox and learn strategies that will be helpful before, during, and after a challenging behavior occurs. After registering, you’ll obtain a free access code to use at a time that works for you.
