Transition Planning for Individuals with an Autism Spectrum Disorder: Choosing Meaningful Goals and Objectives
Presenter: Julie Weiss, MSEd, BCBA, LABA
Date and Time: RESCHEDULED – Thursday, April 27, 2017, 1:00PM-3:00PM EST
Abstract: Transition is defined as the process of changing from one state or condition to another. Transition planning specifically outlines the change from school to adult life for individuals with an autism spectrum disorder. Transition planning is designed to ensure that the student will be provided the necessary skills and services to make a smooth transition from school to adult life. Identifying and teaching skills that are needed to maximize the learner’s independence begins at age 14. Transition skills focus on the learner’s future career, interests, and participation in their community post-graduation. This webinar will begin by reviewing current literature and research on transition planning. Participants will learn how to assess transition skills and determine skills to teach based on assessment outcomes. The workshop will also address best instructional practices for teaching transition skills both in and outside of the classroom setting and generalizing those skills to the community, home and work.
Recognizing and Dealing with Everyday Ethical Dilemmas in the Workplace
Presenter: Richard B. Graff, Ph.D., BCBA-D, LABA
Date and Time: Thursday, May 11, 2017, 1:00PM-3:00PM EST
Abstract: Behavior analytic practitioners encounter potential ethical dilemmas in the workplace on a regular basis. Some of these issues are fairly straightforward, and experienced BCBAs can deal with these situations fairly easily. However, on occasion, more difficult and complex ethical situations arise. Recognizing and dealing effectively with these situations is a critical skill that all behavior analysts must have. This presentation begins with a review of some common ethical dilemmas that can arise in the workplace. Then, we will review how to assess whether or not an issue rises to the level of being considered an ethical violation. Next, we will review some strategies for evaluating the complexity of the situation, which may dictate whether or not the behavior analyst has the ability to resolve the situation on their own, or if additional resources would be needed. Finally, we will review the steps necessary to deal with a complex ethical dilemma. Understanding how to recognize and deal with complex ethical issues will not only help you protect your clients, but will help to protect you as well.
