Description

Every individual with High-Functioning Autism (HFA) is extremely different, which can make providing treatment very difficult.

They have unique abilities in visual-spatial processing, rule-following, sensory perception, and detailed memory, but also deficits in executive functioning, integrative processing, and other complex cognitive skills. Thus, they are more prone to the co-occurring challenges of anxiety, depression, aggression, poor self-regulation, inattention, and social skill deficits.

Watch autism expert and author, Cara Daily, PhD, BCBA, for this 2-day certificate training and learn how to integrate essential cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) tools, evidence-based behavioral interventions and successful psychosocial techniques to effectively teach your clients with HFA (0-25 years) to regulate their emotions, develop impulse control, and improve their behaviors.

You will receive in-depth specialized training in using:

  • Assessment tools to guide treatment programming
  • Motivational interviewing, mindfulness, exposure and response prevention, social stories, social skills programs and social autopsies
  • Comprehensive manualized treatment program for reducing anxiety
  • CBT to address comorbid disorders, poor social skills, adaptive behavior deficits, special interests, poor attention and motivation, and any school or work-based problems

Through engaging case studies, and hands-on demonstrations and activities, you will leave this training with the knowledge and skills required to confidently assess and treat your clients with autism!
