Webinar: Ethical Treatment of Challenging Behavior in Students with Autism or Other Developmental Disabilities

In collaboration with the Division on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (DADD)

Webinar_LaptopStudents with autism, intellectual disability, or other developmental disabilities often display behaviors that act as barriers to social, academic, and adaptive development. Many traditional methods to reduce challenging behaviors, such as punishment and other aversive interventions, are now widely recognized as unethical, and often are illegal. In this program, a panel of experts will explore the how treatment of challenging behavior has evolved to conform to ethical guidelines and evidence-based practices for supporting appropriate behavior. Specifically, speakers will discuss a functional approach to behavior support including antecedent-based interventions, replacement behavior, and consequence strategies. You’ll come away better able to prevent and respond to challenging behaviors with strategies that are evidence-based and respectful of students’ rights and dignity.

After viewing this program, you will be able to:

  • Describe the history of the treatment of challenging behavior in persons with developmental disabilities and discuss the rationale for the current ethical guidelines
  • Summarize CEC and BACB® ethical guidelines for the treatment of challenging behavior
  • List and describe the strategies that are considered best practice in the treatment of challenging behaviors in individuals with developmental disabilities, including: FBA process, Antecedent-Based Strategies, and Teaching New Skills.
