Presentation Abstract

This will be an extended session to allow parents and teachers to conduct a preliminary assessment of one child's behavior and develop an initial behavior intervention plan. We will use the Brief Behavior Questionnaire and Intervention Plan (BBQuIP) to guide our efforts. The focus of the session will be to identify the communicative function of one child's persistent behaviors, select ways to prevent the behavior, and select one or more replacement skills to be taught. This is a lot to accomplish in a short time, so come to this session ready to work!
