“Positive Practices in Behavioural Support Through Nonlinear Applied Behavior Analysis” and “Assessment and Analysis of Severe and Challenging Behavior”
Dr Gary LaVigna, Clinical Director of the Institute for Applied Behavior Analysis (IABA, Los Angeles), will be conducting two evidenced based training programmes to improve the quality of life of individuals with complex and challenging needs.
“Positive Practices in Behavioural Support Through Nonlinear Applied Behavior Analysis” is a 4-day seminar series covering basic principles of positive programming, positive behavioural support, comprehensive functional assessment, emergency management strategies, and how to ensure quality services.
The program will be held in Glasgow (9 – 12 Oct), Manchester (15 – 18 Oct), Newcastle-upon-Tyne (22 -25 Oct), and London (30 Oct – 2 Nov).
“Assessment and Analysis of Severe and Challenging Behavior” is a longitudinal guided practicum.
Participants will conduct a comprehensive functional assessment, develop a positive behaviour support plan, and implement the plan over a 7 month time frame. At every step, Dr LaVigna will give feedback and guidance.
This programme begins 5 – 7 Nov. There will be three 2-day follow-up feedback sessions scheduled.
This training series is being sponsored by the Kent Autistic Trust, the Challenging Behavior Foundation, the Northwest Positive Behavior Support Network, The Loddon School, The Loddon Training and Consultancy, The Richmond Fellowship, and High Quality Lifestyles.
