We invite you to take part in our online training courses, designed to share information and practical knowledge about designing effective treatment programs for children with autism, based on the science of Applied Behavior Analysis.
The course consists of 33 episodes that show you, step by step, how to plan, organize, and implement intervention for a child with autism. We have selected the areas of theory and practice that we believe to be the most important and have presented them in a simple, straightforward manner.
The series begins by presenting the characteristics and core symptoms of autism spectrum disorders. This is followed by a discussion of the most effective forms of treatment to address those characteristics. You will learn how to determine the deficit areas in your student, design and implement intervention strategies, and verify their effectiveness. Information is presented that will show you how to arrange the teaching space, select teaching materials, and create an effective motivational system. In addition, you will gain information about specific teaching techniques that have been proven to be effective through scientific research. The courses will help you to identify which educational programs you should use at the beginning of intervention and which areas should be developed next. In addition, you will learn strategies for effectively dealing with problem behavior to ensure the child’s success.
While this platform is dedicated to specialists working with children with autism, it has a much broader use. The strategies described herein can be applied by not only teachers and therapists, but also parents, grandparents and other family members. Although the course describes intervention with children, the presented methods can be just as effectively used while working with adolescents and adults. Finally, although we are experts in the treatment of children with autism, the applied behavior analysis strategies presented throughout the course can be implemented to achieve the same effective outcomes when treating children and adolescents with other developmental disabilities.
