Specifically designed for Educators working with Students in Preschool-Grade 12: General Education, Special Education Staff, Counselors, School Psychologists, Behavior Intervention Specialists and Teams, Instructional Assistants, Title I Staff, and School Leaders.
- Practical APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS (ABA) strategies and interventions to help you successfully manage students struggling with challenging behavior issues
- How to better strategize and intervene using APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS to pinpoint the triggers and signals of the disruptive and difficult behaviors you deal with in your classroom and school
- Learn how to develop a comprehensive plan to change behavior using the components of ABA

Practical Ideas and Strategies
Join Jennifer Leese for a strategy-packed day focusing on using APPLIED BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS (ABA) to decrease the difficult and challenging behaviors you deal with daily. In this comprehensive, NEW seminar, you will learn how to put ABA into practice to reduce and eliminate difficult, disruptive and even dangerous behaviors and help students learn to manage themselves in more appropriate ways.
Discover how to develop, design and implement behavior plans that have detailed understanding of the antecedent, the behavior and the consequence, along with the function of the behavior, an essential element of ABA. In addition, numerous ideas will be shared including de-escalation strategies, preventative safety tips, creating environments to prevent challenging behaviors, reinforcers for positive behaviors, and suggestions for professionals from a variety of different disciplines who work together to collaborate in the assessment and implementation of a student’s behavior improvement plan.
You won’t want to miss this hands-on, interactive seminar to help you implement the key components of ABA in your classroom or school to help you solve the behavior problems you face every day.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader
I know that today’s learners are coming to us with a variety of behaviors that not only impede their learning, but disrupt the learning of others around them. The science of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) holds a well-earned reputation as a methodology for behavior change and can be used to prevent challenging behaviors, as well as reverse the momentary escalation and intensity of crisis behaviors. ABA, when used correctly and consistently, can make a big difference in helping our students learn to manage and change their disruptive behaviors so they can learn and get along in school and society. Isn’t that the goal we hope all our students will achieve?
I am excited to spend the day sharing dozens of practical strategies for creating a safe and therapeutic learning environment using the components of ABA. I’ve developed this seminar to help you identify specific antecedents, consequences and functions of challenging behavior, define challenging behaviors in observable and measurable terms, develop comprehensive plans to change behavior, monitor behavior to ensure success, and to provide you with low-prep, next-day ideas you can use immediately.
You will leave with a toolkit filled with strategies for developing classroom and individual behavior management plans to create learning environments that support and teach pro-social skills and promote self-management through the use of evidence-based programs. You’ll also gain simple, yet highly effective ways for identifying, recording, evaluating, and changing social and academic behaviors. You will be able to blend ABA principles seamlessly into your current school-wide system and learn procedures with corresponding checklists and technology resources for functional behavior assessments, observations and step-by-step behavior intervention plans. All of this and more in an engaging, multi-media, fast-paced day!
Jennifer Leese, Ed. D.
