Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Jeff Kupfer, PhD, Board Certified Behavior Analyst

In order to build cooperative behaviors in others, we must learn to change our own behavior patterns and practices. This class provides a brief overview of selected evidence-based behavior principles based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We will review the dangers of using coercive and punitive methods to change behavior, and will focus on positive alternatives.

Parents, Caregivers, Professionals, Educators/Teachers and Community Members will learn to use Cooperative Behavior Building methods for behavior change by:

  • Recognizing and understanding the five principles of behavior to enhance relationships

  • Distinguishing between proactive and reactive methods and how these two approaches result in diverse outcomes

  • Drawing upon Cooperative Behavior Building methods to increase positive behaviors and decrease challenging or problematic behaviors

Classes are free and open to the public

Class are held at the John Taylor Conference Center at 1665 Coal Creek Drive in Lafayette
9:00AM-1PM / Registration begins at 8:30AM

To register via phone, dial 303.457.5719 or via the web https://secure.imaginecolorado.org/ssl/trainingClassSignUpFree.htm

Dear SVVSD Special Education Community,

It is an honor to continue serving such outstanding students, teachers, staff and families. Communication throughout our community is essential to ensuring the ongoing success, safety and well-being of our students. Toward this end, we will be launching a new engagement series for special education parents, designed to increase feedback and collaboration between our special education families and St. Vrain Valley Schools.

Our first biannual community forum will be held on September 14 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. at Altona Middle School and will focus on transportation services and how we can best serve the needs of our students. In our special education community, transportation plays a very important role in ensuring a successful start and end to your student’s school day. At this event, we will be joined by Lance Yoxsimer, Director of Transportation, and will be going much deeper into the specific transportation needs of the special education community. Attached is a postcard that you may have received earlier this month that gives an overview of our district transportation program.

Electronic Visit Verification Stakeholder Meeting

Electronic Visit Verification Stakeholder Meeting

Electronic Visit Verification Stakeholder Meeting

The purpose of this meeting is to engage providers, members, and other stakeholders as the Department works to implement Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) for community based services offered through both the State Plan and Waivers.

Background:
As part of the 21st Century CURES Act passed in November 2016, Medicaid programs are required to implement an EVV system for Personal Care services by 2019 and Home Health services by 2023. An EVV system is a telephone and computer based system that electronically verifies information regarding service visits including the date of service, the location of service delivery, the client information, attendant information, details on services performed, and the time that services begin and end. As Colorado considers options for compliance this mandate, we would appreciate the unique perspective of both urban and rural stakeholders on how an EVV system would interact with services received and delivered.
 

EVV Stakeholder Meeting Details:
Date:       September 18, 2017
Time:       10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Location: 303 E.17th Ave, Denver, CO. Conference Room 7B (7th floor)
Call-in:      Local: (720) 279-0026
                Toll Free: (877) 820-7831
                Participant Code: 982280 #
 

Future meeting dates: October 16th and November 20th. Additional meetings may be scheduled.

If you plan to attend this meeting or would like to be added to the EVV specific email list, please RSVP to Lana.Eggers@state.co.us.

For more information please contact Lana Eggers at Lana.Eggers@state.co.us or (303) 866-2050.

Finding Health: a Conference on the Intersection Between Disability and Medical Cannabis

Finding Health: a Conference on the Intersection Between Disability and Medical Cannabis

THINK+change, a new social enterprise of The Arc of Aurora, in partnership with Realm of Caring (www.theroc.us) is hostingFinding Health: a conference on the intersection between disability and medical cannabis this September. We are bringing in respected local experts to speak, and attendees will be introduced to the terminology of medical cannabis, patient and medical provider experiences, as well as quality standards and legal considerations. We are hosting this conference because, for some people, medical cannabis has successfully treated, at a minimum, epilepsy, autism spectrum disorder, spasticity, PTSD and pain. Finding Health does not intend to provide medical or legal advice, but the educational foundation to realize true choice in treatment modalities.

Progresh is an innovative training center dedicated to ski, snowboard, skateboard, BMX and tumbling progression, in a safe and comfortable environment. Their mission is to provide a unique action sports experience, for all skill levels, to Colorado’s Front Range and beyond. This event is open to people of all ages who have ASD, as well as their siblings, friends, and family. We started this event with kids and teens in mind, but it's developed into an event for all ages and it's a great workout!
  
This is similar to the open gym format, however all participants need to arrive promptly for safety orientation and to sign waivers. Parents or guardians are required to remain at the facility. Progresh coaches will guide us as we explore all Progresh has to offer. This includes trampolines, airbags, tumbling, slacklining, and more. If you want to try the ski/ snowboard or skateboarding, please let us know ahead of time as they will need more staff to accommodate.

If you haven't given this activity a try because you feel you or your child needs a more gradual introduction to the facility and the rules, then please contact Julie Darrow at info@autismboulder.org to set up a 1:1 private session. This is not intended to be a free private lesson to improve skills. It is meant to facilitate a gradual introduction for someone who has trouble trying new things in a group setting.

AMC Entertainment and the Autism Society have teamed up to bring families affected by autism and other disabilities a special opportunity to enjoy their favorite films in a safe and accepting environment with the "Sensory Friendly Films" program.

The movie auditoriums will have their lights brought up and the sound turned down, and no previews or ads will be shown before the movie.  AMC's "Silence Is Golden" policy will not be enforced unless the safety of the audience is questioned.

Tickets can be purchased the day of the event.
