Facilitating Independence and Adaptive Behavior Through Self-Management Systems
Self-management strategies have been utilized as evidence-based practices for learners with a range of academic and behavioral challenges including autism spectrum disorder. Teaching self-management to students empowers them to independently regulate their behavior across many situations. Designed for occupational therapists and other pediatric professionals, this 2-hour webinar provides the steps needed to develop an individualized self-management system. This includes selecting and tracking target behaviors and skills, discriminating between expected and unexpected behaviors, learn self-monitoring and recording strategies, and self-reward for meeting specified goals.
- Differentiate functional skills or strategies that can be incorporated into an individualized self-management system.
- Apply common OT strategies to an individualized self-management system to generalize the use of these strategies.
- Compare self-management systems for data-driven decisions to support the intervention.
Target Audience: intermediate- to advanced-level OTs, COTAs, educators, and other pediatric professionals
