Description

Keynote Presentation:

Scientist-Practitioners in the Classroom: Using Data to Guide Our Students’ Progress Daniel W. Mruzek, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT) 

In an age when educators and school-based therapists increasingly feel the pinch of growing demands, decreased resources, and busier school days, how can they apply science to promote the greatest progress for their learners with autism? In this presentation, we will bring together examples of real world educational conundrums and discuss science-based solutions. Our goal: to review key principles of the scientific method and how they can be used to aid decision-making, measure outcomes and plan next steps in the promotion of our students’ independence and quality of life. >

Using Research to Increase Intervention Outcomes for Visual Learners Ruth Donlin, M.S., Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT)

Individuals with autism are highly dependent upon the capacity to infer meaning and context in social interactions and in nonverbal communication.  The neurological functioning of the brain and its implications in understanding and building social and emotional awareness will be discussed.  This presentation will focus on research indicating what individuals with autism tend to focus on in social and emotional situations, as well as choosing interventions based on that research to guide intervention strategies. Increasing Flexibility in Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders Mary E. McDonald, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Association for Science in Autism Treatment (ASAT)

This workshop will provide an overview of behavioral and cognitive flexibility and the importance of focusing on these areas with students with ASD.  Often students with autism adhere to fixed routines, rote repetitive responding or appear to have limited repertoires of responses.  This workshop will focus on the specific skills that need to be addressed as well as provide some practical strategies for improving behavioral and cognitive flexibility.
