Thursday August 4, 2916 9am-3pm
UC Davis MIND Institute Auditorium

Presented by Aubyn C. Stahmer, Ph.D., and  Janice Chan, M.A., BCBA, CPRT is a naturalistic, behavioral approach to teaching students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) that is soundly supported in the scientific literature. Using CPRT is fun, easy and not likely to require a dramatic change in the way teachers interact with their students; instead, it provides a way to label and enhance teaching methods to maximize student achievement, easily identify strengths and weaknesses, and train others to use the same approach. CPRT can work in the classroom because it was designed specifically with the benefits and challenges of the classroom in mind.

Who Should Attend:
Teachers and school personnel supporting students with ASD in grades prek – 3rd grade, behavior specialists, and families who may be interested in learning more about this approach.

Registration is Required. Please clink on the link above to register.
