Teaching Educators to do Behavior Assessments

Teaching Educators to do Behavior Assessments 

Problem behaviors impede a student's ability to learn. In order to provide effective strategies to prevent or reduce problem behaviors, the teacher must be able to assess what is causing them. Many studies have shown that teachers can learn to implement behavior interventions and assessments. This presentation will outline and provide materials for training educators to do behavior assessments in the classroom. *Participant complaints regarding this or any other BACB CE event requirements violations must first be directed, in writing, to the Relias Learning ACE Coordinator, Rhonda Davin, PhD. Please contact Dr. Davin via email: [email protected] The ACE Coordinator will make every reasonable attempt to resolve participant complaints; however, should the ACE Coordinator be unable to resolve the complaint, the complainant may file a formal complaint directly with the BACB.
