When: On Wednesdays May 12, 19, 26, 2021 at 7 pm US Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
Description: This workshop is designed to support families in being ready with data for their respective IEP / School Meetings. These 3 sessions of 60 minutes each will discuss the many behaviors that children engage in that, with support and the introduction of skills and replacement behaviors, you can expect an improvement in. We will review the “when and where” of the behaviors and you will be guided through creating a documentation system that works best for you and the child. We will delve into common diagnostic categories and the behaviors that typically manifest as a result. Lastly, we will review the documentation process and presentation of data collected. Once you complete this 3-part workshop you can go into an IEP/School meeting comfortable that you have data to present that can rival what is presented by others. You will be able to provide supplemental documentation to obtain support services.
