 Behavior Analysis in Schools: Student Focused Teaming and the Behavior Analyst; Daniel Irwin, M.Ed., BCBA, LBA 

This session will focus on the expanding and sometimes unpredictable role of behavior analysts working in school systems. Topics will include:

1. Information from statewide survey of behavior analysts in schools

2. Working effectively as part of a school team

3. Ethical dilemmas unique to school settings

 Building Relationships through Preferential Assessments; Danis Urban, BCBA, LBA and Daria Lorio-Barsten, M.Ed., BCBA, LBA; 

In a school setting, one can't get far in changing behavior until a relationship or rapport has been established. This can prove especially challenging when working with students who are receiving Tier 3 interventions due to their interfering behaviors. This interactive session discusses the use of variations of forced choice preference assessments along with pairing to establish positive interactions with students thus leading towards sustainable behavioral change. 

  A Professional Development Model to Increase Implementation of Evidence-Based Practices for Young Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder within Early Childhood Public School Settings: A Behavior Analystís Perspective; Stefanie Paul, M.Ed., BCBA, LBA 

Behavior analysts may find coaching the implementation of evidence based practices for young children with autism spectrum disorder within early childhood public school settings challenging.  This session will identify potential barriers to implementation of professional development models within early childhood classrooms in public school settings and describe one professional development model delivered in various public school divisions in Virginia.  This session will include a description of the components of the model, selection of evidence-based practices, ethical considerations, and results of implementation.

Utilizing Behavior Analysis to Implement Instruction for Functional, Behavioral, and Academic Skills in Multiple Settings; Paige Carter, M.Ed., BCBA, LBA; Jennifer McMichael, BCBA; Claire Sumner, BCBA
