Melinda Henson, MS Ed, BCBA, Toileting successfully is a skill that has a significant and long-term impact on an individual’s quality of life outcome. By actively teaching toileting skills, we can have an immediate impact on levels of independence at home and school; increase opportunities for social & group acceptance; widen options for work and school that may not otherwise be possible; and decrease frustration and the risk of abuse as they become adults. Interventions presented will focus on how to identify and implement the most appropriate toilet training strategy for your child/student.

This webinar will focus on the unique characteristics of young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This webinar will discuss some of the early red flags of an Autism Spectrum Disorder in very young children, and how the areas of communication, social and behavior are impacted. Information will be shared on simple strategies for young children with Autism and what steps families and caregivers can take if they suspect an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Providing evidence-based educational programming for students on the Autism Spectrum relies on a careful selection of focused approaches that have been shown to promote the acquisition of specific skills or the reduction of behaviors that are interfering with learning and social engagement in the classroom. Based upon current systematic reviews, nearly three-dozen approaches are considered effective at promoting such positive outcomes.

Visual supports are an evidence-based practice that, if used correctly, promote independence by providing meaning and predictability for individuals with ASD.

During this presentation, we will discuss the steps for developing and implementing visual supports for all students. The examples provided will show how these visual supports might look at the middle and high school level. 

This presentation will provide an overview of strategies for moving structured play into the natural environment using a variety of visual supports. This presentation will provide informaiton on how to structure common play items to increase purposeful play and how to incorporate peers and friendship skills into structured play opportunities.
