Teaching Functional Skills to Infants and Toddlers with Severe Disabilities

Conference Year: 

2017

Primary Speaker name: 

What is “functioning” in an infant or toddler with severe-profound disabilities? This session will identify functional skills within different routines, focused on engagement, independence, and social relationships. We will explore how professionals can promote evidence-based parenting and instructional practices to foster functioning. Finally, participants will see how principles of applied behavior analysis, so often used in decontextualized ways, can be used in playful, ordinary routines
