Effective Behavior Modification Strategies for CWA


AUGUST 25 (SATURDAY) SEMINAR – WORKSHOP 

“Effective Behavior Modification Strategies for CWA” 
9:00 AM-5:00PM

The complexities of autism have been marked by behaviors that have tested every adult’s analytical ability, creativity, perseverance and tenacity to help a child with autism (CWA) cope with and/or adjust well to his surroundings.  It is a great achievement for both the CWA and adult once a behavior is properly addressed through the use of behavior modification strategies.

This month’s activity is primarily designed for parents of children with autism, caregivers, special education teachers and other professionals engage in the early intervention of autism to respond to the challenges of autism. The morning session’s lecture will focus on the nature, characteristics and principles of behavior and behavior modification. A short video will also be presented to support the concepts presented.

In the afternoon, the speaker will impart knowledge on how to implement behavior modification strategies to address behaviors common to a CWA. Actual demonstration of some strategies with a CWA will take place as the highlight. Additional videos will be shown to support and to give more emphasis on the subject being tackled. As part of the workshop, an actual case of a CWA shared by a parent-member will be the subject of a group case analysis and presentation.
