    Regis Lazor was trained in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) at the University of Delaware over 40 years ago, a program at the forefront of the behavioral movement.  He has been a special education teacher, ARC Director and Professor at California University of PA (Special Education Dept., where he also served as Associate Dean of the College of Education and Human Services.  He was responsible for developing and teaching courses in ABA to both undergraduate and graduate students for over 35 years.  His expertise in ABA and Positive Teaching Strategies has made for a very busy career as a behavior consultant, trainer, presenter, both locally and nationally, and an advocate for children and adults with behavioral and learning difficulties.  Thousands of professionals in the field have been trained by Regis, including through “T-BASE”, a training program he co-authored.  Having turned to private practice through Behavior and Learning Support Systems, LLC, he is now sharing his experiences and that of colleagues he personally trained. 

    Program Description

    This presentation is designed to help parents and professionals develop a practical, step by step approach to help pre-school/elementary age children, identified with ASD and challenging behaviors, become “Famous for Something Else.”  Participants will learn about effective goal planning, how to deal effectively with attention seeking behaviors, how to manage self control and how to use redirection successfully.  Most importantly, the focus will be on putting “fun” back into teaching children.

    Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

    • identify  the important principles of Applied Behavior Analysis
    • use Functional Behavior Analysis to understand why children do what they do
    • develop goals that “fit” the child’s strengths and interests
    • develop a simple step by step plan to resolve behavioral changes
    • plan on having “fun” teaching children
