Approximately 12-18% of US children have a developmental or behavioral disorder according to the American Academy of Pediatrics policy statement, indicating a high clinical need for appropriate services. Previous
research has suggested the use of evidence-based interventions within a
behavioral framework to effectively treat target concerns associated with
developmental and behavioral disorders. This workshop will provide an
overview of the use of behavioral principles in the assessment and management of child and parent behavior. This workshop will expose participants to behavioral technology including: data collection, data evaluation, interpretation of results and development of interventions. This
material can be applied across ages especially for those working with the
IDD population.
