Participants will learn about the correct implementation of classroom-based reinforcement systems such as token economies, group contingencies and self-management plans.
Effective and evidence-based teaching strategies including Behaviour Skills Training (BST) and Functional Communication Training (FCT) are taught using case-based video scenarios and practical activities to allow participants to engage in intervention planning to support positive behaviour change.
Included in the registration is access to a token system, preference assessment, behaviour skills training planning document, and visual supports.
