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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
