The goal of this proposal is to create a behavioral curriculum for hands-on trainings for parents, caregivers, and service providers that address the most frequent and problematic areas of daily living: management of challenging behaviors, mealtime behaviors, and toileting. the curriculum will be based on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and focus on developing the specific techniques and skills that have proved to be successful in these areas. the four-part approach of this proposal will entail curriculum development, technological transfer of this information via a train-the-trainer model, on-site interactive training of staff and caregivers, and hands-on follow-up with individuals with ASD themselves.
