Level 1 ABA Training will be 12 hours in length, over 2 days, and will focus on:
The principles of ABA:
Recognizing the family has a central role in the child’s early life, and understanding the family’s values, culture, priorities, concerns, and resources as they relate to their child, and
Recognizing the importance of Embedded Coaching/routine-based interventions/activity-based interventions, which focus on a family’s routines and ways to systematically implement strategies in a family’s natural everyday routines while using parental feedback.
Instructional Methods include: PowerPoint, videos, discussion and group activities.
The Workshop is geared towards professionals working with an early childhood (Early Intervention / CPSE) population, and prepares individuals to sit for the Nassau/Suffolk County Tier 1 Exam.
This workshop is appropriate for prospective providers who:
Have not received formal ABA training
Have not taken or who have not passed the Nassau/Suffolk County Tier 1 Exam
Who may need additional training to successfully implement ABA methodologies during treatment sessions
