When Behavioral Strategies Fail: “I Tried That And It Didn’t Work!”

October 25, 2018    12:45  -  2:00

This session is closed. Please consider our other sessions offered during this time.


Have you ever felt you tried all the behavioral tools in your tool box and still struggled to see positive results? May-be you found yourself saying “Reinforcement does not work with them…” “I tried that and it didn’t get rid of the behavior…”.

Perhaps you heard a colleague say “Schedules just aren’t effective for this individual…” “He doesn’t like token boards…” “They just aren’t motivated…”.

In this session, we will unpack some of challenges a team may encounter when implementing behavioral strategies and discuss how these strategies can be optimized to decrease challenging behavior and promote success.
