This webinar will highlight some key elements of effectively implementing behavioral assessment and intervention strategies in mainstream classrooms. Given that much of our behavior analytic practice has been derived from research on individuals with disabilities, this webinar will discuss some of the considerations for applying practices with typically developing students and their teachers. It also will address some general tips for effective consultation in schools, regardless of the type of classroom or students you are working with.
