Excellent Webinar
Nice work
This was very good. I took a lot of notes, and now I have a better idea of how to approach the lack of social skills. Thank you!

Thank you for the information. I was so happy that someone asked if it was too late to teach someone with ABA strategies. I view ABA priciples as effective for anyone and everyone! Anyone who wants to change their behavior needs to practice repetition. Thank you!

Extremely helpful information I will use in my class. I really like the example of using direct instruction, step by step practices students can engage in.
