The Nebraska ASD Network is committed to providing up-to-date information and training based on current research about autism spectrum disorders. Which consists of workshops that are scheduled throughout the state on a variety of subjects and several websites that offer on-line training opportunities related to autism spectrum disorders.
The 2019-2020 Tri-State Webinar Series offers a wide variety of content. Webinars are live on the dates and times posted on the flyer. All webinars are recorded and archived on our site after the initial airing. This allows you to watch all content later as well!
Shaping is a systematic process of reinforcing successive approximations to a target behavior. The technique is used when students need to learn new behavior. A teacher identifies the student’s behavior and provides reinforcement only for closer approximations toward the desired behavior, which is a terminal behavior of the shaping process. Shaping is especially useful when the desired behavior is difficult to learn by instruction, imitation, and verbal or physical cues.
The Nebraska Autism Spectrum Disorders Network and partners have created these strategies and approaches for helping people on the autism spectrum.
