Jed Baker, PH.D. – Live interactive webinar. Dr. Baker discusses predictors of better outcomes, how to maximize student engagement, pitfalls of traditional disciplinary models and how to teach and generalize social skills to help increase acceptance and tolerance from peers. This is an interactive “live-stream”. You will be able to ask Dr. Baker questions throughout the day as well as “chat” with other participants via the buttons at the bottom of the screen.
Individuals with social-behavioral challenges and/or ASD often present with difficulty regulating their feelings and interacting socially. The first part of this workshop outlines predictors of better outcome and how to maximize motivation and engagement of students.
The second part discusses the pitfalls of a traditional escalating disciplinary model and the need to understand why students are having behavioral challenges. The focus is on both soothing moments of dysregulation, de-escalating meltdowns, and problem-solving repeat problems. Problem solving involves identifying triggers to frustration and anxiety, and designing effective behavior plans for each of those triggers. Information will be imparted though lecture, interactive exercises, and video clips.
