Description

Abstract

Individuals with disabilities are at significantly greater risk for abuse than the general population. This presentation addresses the unique challenges of assessing, implementing prevention, and addressing abuse that involves individuals with ASD. In addition, societal variables such as power differentials often existing between the roles of individuals with ASD and their care providers or limited resources to address abuse in our communities will be discussed because they place individuals with ASD at greater risk. Strategies practitioners and parents can use for decreasing the likelihood abuse will occur will be identified. Resources for increasing knowledge about abuse and disabilities will be provided.

An Intro to RFT

Fantastic presentation and content. Liked the frequent learning checks to be sure we could understand what was being taught. Nice format too. Very easy to use. I loved this course and look forward to more!

Easy to follow

RFT was confusing to me when we went over it in class. After going through these lessons, it seemed so much clearer!

The introduction to RFT module was an excellent resource. The material was appropriately paced, and presented well. Follow-up activities helped reinforce the material presented. Overall an excellent learning tool!

Great learning experience! much better than a textbook =.)

Great instructional design and fun!

Super enjoyable module that is well structured, fun, fast-paced, informative, and clear! This module is laced with humor that I think most BCBAs would enjoy. Everything is broken up into small chunks with tons of active student responding incorporated within to keep the pace fast and engaging. I was actually a little sad when it was over!
