Behavioral fluency has great potential to aid behavior analysts, teachers, and parents in their attempt to apply socially-valid, powerful interventions to the clients, students, and individuals they seek to help. This session will briefly review behavioral fluency and its learning outcomes. Participants will:
- Learn how to schedule and develop behavioral fluency routines within treatment sessions or classroom activities
- Practice implementing the steps of behavioral fluency routines including frequency measurement
- Review and evaluate behavioral fluency performance data.
Kristine Quinby, Founder and CEO of Potential Inc., commented:”We are excited to have acclaimed authors like Kubina and Yurich come to Newtown to conduct this important workshop. Participants will be able to incorporate the acquired knowledge into their teaching and parenting expertise right away.”
