ABA for SLPs
Speech-language pathologists implement their clinical practice by writing goals, targeting a variety of clinical behaviors, and measuring progress. There is much overlap in theory and practice between SLPs (speech-language pathologists) and BCBAs (board certified behavior analysts), but the similarities are not always clear across professions. The UW Autism Center is excited to present a workshop for SLPs, students, or others interested in learning how these two approaches compliment each other. Please join us on October 19, 2017 from 9am-4pm for this valuable professional development opportunity.
ABA for SLPs

The purpose of this workshop is to de-mystify jargon between the two disciplines by describing the overlapping and complementary practices in these fields in order to optimize clinical outcomes. In this workshop, participants will learn:
• About ABCs of ABA, reinforcement, and shaping behavior
• About systematic goal-writing targeting communication needs for children of all ages and ability levels, incorporating behavioral approaches
• To identify common ground between ABA and SLP including augmentative and alternative communication, environmental supports, and incidental teaching
