Autism Workshop: Planning for Incidental Learning @ The Birchtree Center
Mar 27 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Planning for Incidental Learning:
How to Promote Generalization & Increase Learning Opportunities

An Autism Workshop for Para-Educators, Childcare Providers & Direct Service Providers

**Snow date: April 3, 2019**

Students with autism often struggle to use their skills in new settings. For example, just because a student can read a book at her desk doesn’t mean she’ll be able to read the menu in the cafeteria. But students CAN learn to generalize their skills to new settings when they receive the right kind of practice and support.

In fact, every school day offers countless opportunities for students to practice and strengthen their skills–whether students are waiting in line, walking in the halls, or communicating with a classmate. Board Certified Behavior Analysts from The Birchtree Center will discuss strategies for promoting generalization and increasing students’ incidental learning opportunities. You’ll get some practical tips for helping students practice their skills throughout the school and across the school day.

This 1.5-hour workshop includes a presentation followed by questions and discussion. The workshop is open to all–including educators, parents, and guardians–but the workshop is designed to be especially useful to para-educators and others who work one-on-one or in small groups with individuals with autism in school and childcare settings. Certificates of attendance are provided.

Admission is complimentary and reservations are suggested. Register online here or call 603-433-4192.

Autism Workshop: Function-Based Behavior Strategies @ The Birchtree Center
Apr 10 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

What Should I Do About Student Behavior?
An Introduction to Function-Based Behavior Strategies

An Autism Workshop for Para-Educators, Childcare Providers & Direct Service Providers

Presenter: Stephanie Morin, MSEd, BCBA, Outreach Clinical Director

WHAT you should do about student behavior depends on WHY a student is doing it! Board Certified Behavior Analyst Stephanie Morin will offer an introduction to using function-based behavior strategies in the classroom. When a student’s team understands the function that a behavior serves for a particular student, the team can come up with more effective strategies for preventing and reducing those behaviors that can interfere with learning. This function-based approach can be effective for many students–including those with autism.

This 1.5-hour workshop includes a presentation followed by questions and discussion. The workshop is open to all–including educators, parents, and guardians–but the workshop is designed to be especially useful to para-educators and others who work one-on-one or in small groups with individuals with autism in school and childcare settings. Certificates of attendance are provided.

Admission is complimentary and reservations are suggested. Call The Birchtree Center at 603-433-4192 or click here to register.
