Key Transitions for Individuals with ASD

October 6, 2017

8:30 am – 4:00 pm

Anschutz Medical Campus, Aurora, CO

 

Featured Speaker: Tamara Dawkins, PhD and Glenna Osborne, MEd, University of North Carolina TEACCH Autism Program

 

The incidence of autism has steadily increased over the last 20 years. Youth diagnosed today contribute to the increasingly large adult population, overwhelming our current transition and vocational rehabilitation programs. Recent data from a study conducted at the UNC TEACCH Autism program indicated that many adults continue to require services across a wide array of areas. However, caregivers report a lack of resources to meet these vast areas of need. Families and professionals can help to maximize outcomes and quality of life for individuals with autism by adopting a pro-active approach to transition planning.  During this interactive day of learning, participants will hear the latest research along with strategies that foster positive adult outcomes. Emphasis on key transition times along the lifespan will be discussed to highlight the important and unique aspects of transition for individuals with autism and their families.

 

Registration includes boxed sandwich lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

 

Location:Anschutz Medical Campus, Education 2 South, 13121 E. 17th Ave., 1st Floor Auditorium, Aurora, CO

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

Social Communication Interventions for Preverbal and Minimally Verbal Children with ASD

Social Communication Interventions for Preverbal and Minimally Verbal Children with ASD  

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 1:00-2:00 MT
Speaker: Connie Kasari, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles
 
Register here: http://bit.ly/2goH3Gc 

Behavioral interventions have been critical for improving the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Notable achievements include the improved numbers of children with optimal outcomes, and the larger number of children accessing the regular curriculum. Despite these gains, standard behavioral methods have had the least success in social communication outcomes. We continue to find nearly half of all children entering school without fluent, socially related communication skills. This talk will focus on the core social communication impairment in children with ASD, evaluations of this core domain and recently developed, effective interventions.
 
The webinar will be recorded and placed in the AUCD Webinar Library here: http://www.aucd.org/resources/webinars.cfm.

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.
