In collaboration with Dr. Brian Iwata, prominent researcher, clinician, and educator in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for over three decades, Services for the UnderServed is offering a half-day workshop for clinicians and educators who want information regarding answers that drill down deeper than the veneer of Positive Behavior Supports. The session will provide essential information for BCA-D, BCBA and BCaBA level behavior analysts, Psychologists, Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), Special Education staff, and Supervisors on when, if ever is it appropriate to use more intrusive interventions to shape behavior? What are the best practice measures to assure that the least intrusive and most effective treatments are used? And, what does a clinical team do to make sure that an individual’s civil right to effective treatment is met?
