The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) is hosting a 1.5 day workshop for caregivers, professionals, and all others who work with individuals who have intellectual disabilities (ID) and engage in challenging behaviors.
March 22-23, 2012
Crowne Plaza, Near Reliant-Medical
8686 Kirby Dr.
Working with individuals with ID can be both a rewarding and challenging job. In many cases, individuals may engage in challenging behavior that creates barriers to establishing meaningful relationships and skill acquisition.
Discover "Why Problem Behavior Occurs (and Why it is Important to Know the Answers)" as Dr. Richard Smith, University of North Texas, and instructors from the Behavior Analysis Resource Center help participants learn evidence-based best practice prevention and management techniques to support positive behavior.
Another announcement will be sent once registration is open.
