We offer a range of group trainings, varying in duration, to meet  the needs of parents, caregivers, teachers, administrators and service  agencies who support individuals with intellectual and developmental  disabilities and/or need extra behavior support. Facilitated by Board  Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), our trainings provide attendees  with the knowledge and tools they need to overcome the challenges that  individuals under their care are faced with, whether their focus is to  identify challenging behaviors, learn strategies for dealing with these  behaviors, how to teach replacement behaviors or why people display  challenging behaviors. At Clear Creek Behavior Services, our interactive  trainings give participants the opportunity to practice new skills and  learn with the rest of the group as they discuss their interpretations  of their own real-life scenarios as well as examples on video to gain a  deeper understanding of how to achieve their goals.

Functional Communication Training


A Practical Application 

This two-hour training concentrates on the practical application of  Functional Communication and how it is used to replace challenging  behavior(s) with responses that are more effective and more easily  understood by the communication partner. FCT is a procedure where an  individual is taught an alternate response (e.g., a word, a sign) to the  currently emitted problem behavioral response resulting in the same  reinforcing outcome.  

This training is ideal for parents,  caregivers, teachers, and administrators who support individuals with  Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and/or need extra behavior  support. 

Identifying the ABC's of Challenging Behavior



This training focuses on how to identify and interpret the ABCs  

(Antecedents/Behaviors/Consequences)  of a challenging behavior. This interactive session utilizes real-life  video situations in which attendees can practice observation and data  collection skills, and discuss their interpretations with the rest of  the group. This training is ideal for parents, caregivers, teachers, and  administrators who support individuals with intellectual and  developmental disabilities and/or need extra behavior support. 

Strategies for Building Positive Behaviors



This one-hour training is ideal for parents, caregivers, teachers,  and administrators who support individuals who need extra behavior  support and who are interested in learning basic strategies for building  positive behavior(s). This training will help individuals who want to  learn everyday strategies as a means to reduce the likelihood of  challenging behaviors in the environments where they provide supports  and services. Attendees will have the opportunity to share personal  experiences with the class and to determine, as a group, an effective  method for addressing a challenging behavior. 

Functions of Behaviors


Why do we behave the way we do?

 In this training, individuals will learn about the four functions of  behavior, how to define target behaviors, and common misconceptions  about the functions of behavior. This knowledge will help caregivers and  professionals gain confidence in their understanding of the “why” of  common challenging behaviors. The training will utilize real-life  examples from attendees, as well as vignettes and real-life videos so  attendees can practice the skills they learn. Attendees will receive a  handout on the functions of behavior to reference after the training.  This training is ideal for parents, caregivers, teachers, and  administrators who support individuals with intellectual and  developmental disabilities and/or need extra behavior support.

Applied Behavior Analyis


Building Positive Behaviors Workshop

 This full-day workshop is intended for service agency staff and early  interventionists who are interested in learning about Applied Behavior  Analysis. This training is ideal for program managers who write  Behavioral ISSP’s and/or professionals who work with individuals of all  ages who engage in challenging behaviors.  

Workshop  topics include: a detailed look at antecedents, behaviors, and  consequences (ABCs) and their effects on behavior; data collection  methods; reinforcement and establishing operations; how to conduct  preference assessments; setting events and establishing operations;  functions of behavior; and intervention tips and techniques to include  functional communication training.
