PBIS for Children and Youth with Neurodevelopmental Disabilities

posted Apr 6, 2017, 5:09 AM by Professional Learning

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports 
for Children and Youth with 
Neurodevelopmental Disabilities

 

 

 

May 15, 2017

8:30 am - 4:00 pm

SERESC Conference Center 
Bedford, NH 

 

Overview

 

Providers from a variety of disciplines care for children with ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders who struggle with challenging behaviors across home and school settings. This poses a challenge. This conference will provide opportunities to learn more about Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, an evidence-based treatment for challenging behaviors in children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. 

 

The one-day conference will include two keynote presentations.  

 

Morning Keynote

Whenever a large societal swing occurs, associated shifts in behavior norms and acceptability also can be experienced. The Southern Poverty Law Center, for example, indicated after the 2016 Presidential election, educators "reported that school climate had been negatively impacted." The purpose of this presentation is to describe how our knowledge and experience with positive behavioral interventions and supports could be considered as an immediate, important, and effective preventive response for students with disabilities with dramatic shifts in school and classroom climate. Based on our prevention and behavioral sciences, we suggest that educators must "double down" now on their PBIS implementation to maintain school and classroom host environments that are safe, respectful, equitable, and effective for all students.

 

Afternoon Keynote

Function-based support and teaching for generalized responding for students with disabilities will be discussed. The more complex and intensive the learning need, the more deliberate and explicit the teaching approach. The teaching and learning goal is efficient self-managed use of expected behavior within and across natural settings and contexts, especially, where ineffective behavior is more likely to be displayed. The purpose of this session is to review the core features of a specialized functioned based approach to behavior support and the importance of teaching social skills, in particular, so that accurate, sustained, and generalized responding is most likely to occur. Topics include function-based support, understanding and addressing behavior habits, phases of teaching and learning, and promoting general case responding.

 

Registration


 

Registration is online and by credit card only. The registration fee is $75. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. The registration deadline is 10 days prior to the activity date.

To register, please visit the event website

 

For registration questions, please email clpd.support@hitchcock.org or call (603) 653-1234.

 

Learning Outcome(s)

 

Learners will be able to discuss the core features of positive behavioral interventions and support (PBIS), including function-based support, understanding and addressing behavior habits, phases of teaching and learning, and promoting general case responding.  

 

Accreditation

 

Dartmouth-Hitchcock is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Becoming Techwise Early Childhood Educators: 
Making Sense of Screen Media Use with Young Children
Keynote Speakers:
Patricia Cantor, EdD, Professor of Early Childhood Education, PSU
Mary Cornish, PhD, Professor of Early Childhood Education, PSU
Dr. Patricia Cantor and Dr. Mary Cornish first began researching and writing about the impact of screen media on young children in 2000. Since then, they have presented extensively about screen media and children at regional and national conferences and have conducted numerous workshops for families and early childhood professionals. In 2016, their book, Techwise Infant and Toddler Teachers: Making Sense of Screen Media for Children Under 3, was published by Information Age. The Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood called the book “an important read for anyone who works with young children – both those who enthusiastically embrace digital technologies and those who are concerned about their use.”

Dr. Cantor worked in publishing children’s books before changing careers to become a preschool teacher. Then, she was the director of a child care center/lab school. For the past 25 years, as a professor of Early Childhood Studies at Plymouth State University, she has taught hundreds of undergraduate students in courses on child development, inclusive early education, infant and toddler care and education, the history and philosophy of early childhood education, and early childhood advocacy and policy. Dr. Cantor frequently provides professional development for early childhood educators, including a series on the brain development of infant/toddlers. She is also involved in advocacy initiatives to promote high-quality early care and education.

Dr. Cornish has several years of experience working with diverse children and families in Head Start and military child care as an on-site professional development specialist. She has worked as an infant/toddler teacher and a child care program director. As professor and Chair in the Early Childhood Studies Department at Plymouth State University, she teaches undergraduate courses in culturally responsive early care and education and constructivist curriculum and teaching, with a focus on family engagement. Dr. Cornish edited the book, Promising Practices for Partnering with Families in the Early Years (Information Age Publishing, 2008), which is a volume in the award-winning American Education Research Association’s Research to Practice series.
