Behavior Approaches in Education
Masaryk University will host Amiris Dipuglia, MD, BCBA, highly recognized behaviour analyst and consultant for public schools in Pensylvania, USA.
Dr. Dipuglia will lead three courses (each lasting one full day) and provide intensive training and analogue guided practice in teaching skills for applied behaviour analytic interventions incorporating an analysis of verbal behaviour. Focus will be on skills related to teaching students with autism and related developmental disorders.
The workshops will involve having participants demonstrate skills related to identifying the verbal operants and other ABA concepts, developing classroom schedules and card sort systems for teaching, demonstrating procedures for intensive teaching (discrete trial instruction), and basic mand training skills and reducing problem behaviour. The workshops will also include a brief overview of the VB-MAPP assessment tool and deriving student programs based on the assessment outcomes. Participants will be required to demonstrate acquisition of conceptual skills through brief oral and written assessments, and demonstrate implementation of various teaching protocols.
Certificates of completion will be provided to participants who attend and fully participate in all three courses and pass the final competency assessment. Lunch and coffee break will be provided for participants at the Faculty of Education due to tight schedule of the workshops. Be prepared for intensive work. This summer school is NOT suitable for those, who do not have basic knowledge of ABA.
All workshops will be consecutively interpreted to the Czech language.
