Speaker: Seth Towers, MA

This webinar will cover:

  • Why problem behavior occurs.
  • How some of your interactions with an individual can unintentionally increase problem behavior.
  • How to change your interactions so that problem behavior decreases and appropriate behavior increases
  • Building rapport with an individual so that you can be an effective change agent in the person’s life.
  • Teaching replacement behaviors to decrease problem behavior and increase appropriate behavior.
  • Using social stories to teach new skills so that the person will not need to use problem behavior.
