Supporting Paraprofessionals to Implement Functional Communication Training to Address Challenging Behavior

September 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Presented by Virginia Walker, PhD, BCBA-D, and Megan Carpenter, M.Ed.

Paraprofessionals play an important role in assisting educators to support students with autism spectrum disorder, including delivering behavioral supports to those students who engage in persistent challenging behavior. However, paraprofessionals often are inadequately prepared for their role and have received little or no training to address student challenging behavior. During this webinar, we will present findings and implications from a study examining the effects of teacher-delivered training on paraprofessional implementation of an evidence-based practice, functional communication training, for students with autism spectrum disorder who have complex communication needs. In addition, we will offer attendees with practical guidelines for supervising and training paraprofessionals to deliver behavioral supports.
