Many staff mentioned that they particularly enjoyed a presentation by Dr. Merrill Winston, BCBA, about reinforcers, which are an important teaching tool in the field. They were challenged to redefine how they think of and use reinforcers in order to get the best response from their clients. Our staff are very excited to implement strategies that encourage more success for their clients. They also mentioned how much they enjoyed being able to speak in person with others in the field and hear about what they are working on and how this applies to what we are doing at our location.
All of our conference attendees have expressed what a great opportunity going to the conference was and how much they enjoyed learning and team building together. They can’t wait for next year!
