With the importance and focus on pre‐vocational planning ever growing, educators, therapists and parents are left wondering where and how to begin! Currently, middle school and high school educators – along with parents – are faced with the challenge to plan for transition. Districts are working with teams to create strong, consistent transition plans that meet the diverse challenges of many students beginning in the middle school years. Many educators, parents and therapists find themselves struggling with creating a consistent plan that meets the needs of building a strong vocational skill set for all young adults. Through implementation of a foundation focused on the categories of job readiness, clerical, retail, food service and grocery, education teams are able to develop a plan that can be implemented across a variety of settings. Although basic, these experiences and opportunities help young adults determine what they want to do for employment post high school. This webinar is designed to help by introducing I Can Work!, a 5 module hands-on curriculum paired with visual supports and data collection systems all designed to build a strong, consistent, pre-vocational foundation for all individuals.

According to the Center for Disease Control, the health of caregivers is at risk. Stress affects caregivers more than any other social groups. Those who care for others either in a professional capacity or as family members, often find themselves overwhelmed and burnt out. Caregiving takes its toll on all of us. But in order to best support those we care for, we need to learn how to reduce stress in our lives, without neglecting our roles as caregivers. This course will provide professionals and natural caregivers with the tools, strategies, and resources to prevent and remedy caregiver burnout. Participants will learn how to create routines and rituals that would reduce stress, strengthen relationships, and cultivate joy and relaxation. MORE COURSE INFO…

In this course, Kristi Wees, a pediatric patient advocate and Master’s degreed chemist, will explore some of the biochemical underpinnings of behavior which will cause many professionals to pause and consider other possibilities outside of the diagnostic box for autism. When one reads the diagnostic criteria for Autism, they will quickly realize there is only one biological criteria for the diagnosis: age.

Description: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a research-based intervention that uses the principles of reinforcement and consequences to make significant changes for individuals. Many people believe that ABA is supposed to occur at a table in a 1:1 setting, but that does not always need to be the case. Therapist, caregivers and school professionals can also teach and generalize skills in the community through shaping. The ability to build these skills in the community can affect the individual’s success in getting a haircut, visiting a doctor’s office, getting your fingernails/toenails cut, and shopping at a store. During this presentation, we will talk about what principles of ABA can be used to build these skills, how to prepare ahead of time for teaching the skill and how to collect data over time to track progress.
