Little TN Valley just wants to thank Sasha Long from The Autism Helper and YOU for making both our Knoxville and Murfreesboro workshops such a success!
This full day workshop will offer practical solutions to foster increases in positive behaviors and decreases in problem behaviors. This session will begin by exploring how to apply these strategies to everyday situations in an applicable and proactive way. This approach will focus on the changing outcomes of behaviors by looking at the entire context and approaching behavior from a function based perspective. Audience members will learn how to conduct a thorough Functional Behavior Assessment, select appropriate and function-based strategies, and analyze data to determine growth and next steps. This workshop highlights ready-to-use interventions and real-life scenarios. The concepts can be applied to a wide range of environments.
Have you heard about the best part of the Super Bowl this year? The Microsoft commercial for their new Xbox adaptive controller touched hearts and absolutely stole the show! Little TN Valley has an AT Center, which provides assistive technology to kids so that they can communicate and participate in school and in society — that includes not only ways to learn and work, but ways to play too! Just like the tag line in the commercial, "When Everybody plays, we all win."
