Working Together: Behaviour Analyst & Occupational Therapist Collaboration

Presenter: Amy Stango, M.S., OTR/L, M.S., BCBA

(1.5 BACB CEUs)

Date/Time: Friday, December 2 2016 1:00pm - 2:30pm

Room: John Bassett Theatre


This presentation will address how occupational therapy practitioners and behavior analysts can work collaboratively to effectively and efficiently help the children they serve by using evidence-based practices drawn from the empirical literature of both professional fields.  Through a combination of lecture, video examples, and case studies, participants will learn how occupational therapists and behavior analysts can collaborate to teach motor, functional language, play, and self-care skills, as well as how to work together to prevent and manage problem behavior.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will identify potential reinforcers maintaining sensory behaviors.
  2. Participants will describe how to use escape extinction hierarchies to increase compliance with tolerating non-preferred stimuli.
  3. Participants will identify which common treatments for sensory behaviors lack empirical evidence.
  4. Participants will describe evidence-based strategies for changing behaviors that are under the control of automatic reinforcement.
