How The School Psychologist Can Support Educators To Increase Positive Behaviors And Classroom Participation Of Students With ASD

2 hours running time

Students with ASD often display challenging behaviors that impede their academic, adaptive and social development and school psychologists are often called upon to provide support to the teaching team. This session will describe how to support the understanding and use of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for individuals affected by ASD to promote positive prosocial behaviors that result in increased student engagement and well-being. The presenter will guide participants in how to use the research-based resources and EBPs. The participants will also learn which EBPs can be easily integrated into whole class universal interventions and instruction, which can be used for small group interventions and how to integrate EBPs into individual behavior intervention plans.
