Credits: 3 Type 2 BACB Continuing Education Credit Hours

Title: Teaching Students Using Iconic Communication


Description: One of the primary goals of a treatment program is to establish a functional means of communication for the learner. While many individuals with autism have vocal communication, there may be some individuals entering a treatment program or classroom that do not have effective vocal communication skills. For these individuals it is crucial that an augmentative communication system be established. In this webinar we will discuss iconic communication, review who might benefit from an iconic system, and why you many chose an iconic system over other alternatives. Suggested steps in setting up an iconic system will be discussed and possible examples of how an iconic system may be used in teaching an individual with autism new skills will be reviewed.

Title: Treatment Strategies to Improve Executive Function Skills in Children with Autism


Description: This course will examine executive dysfunction in relation to individuals with autism and review seven areas of executive function that have been identified and are often impaired within this specific population. We will also examine the importance in programming for executive function acquisition within all stages of ABA programs for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Through the use of case studies, we will provide discussion with regard to programming strategies for various types of learners. Furthermore, while the effectiveness of ABA programs in treating the symptoms of children with autism has been well researched and documented, there is extremely limited research in the area of executive function skill acquisition within this population; However, there are many anecdotal accounts of individuals with autism acquiring executive function skills through ABA intervention programs and the need for further empirical research will be discussed.
