Improving Outcomes for Children with Traumatic Brain Injury
Description: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a well-established, but often underutilized, treatment methodology for those with Traumatic Brain Injury. A behaviorally analytic approach to treatment can be used to decrease challenging behaviors as well as improve learning outcomes for those with TBI. This training will give a brief overview of what TBI is and will then focus on strategies to reduce problem behavior as well as approaches to skill building that can be used in everyday practice. Examples of topics covered include functional behavior assessment, antecedent strategies, behavioral shaping, and functional communication training.
