  • Adaptive Behavior Profiles in Autism Spectrum Disorders

    Presenter: Celine Saulnier, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    Deficits in adaptive behavior are, by definition, criteria for Intellectual Disability. Yet in autism, adaptive delays tend to be above and beyond what would be expected based on cognitive impairments, alone. This gap between cognition and adaptive behavior appears to widen with age and impedes functional independence into adulthood. Moreover, patterns of strengths and weaknesses within adaptive domains raise concerns about the use of composite scores that wash out significant differences. This presentation will outline these profiles of adaptive behavior and discuss the importance of assessing for and teaching adaptive skills from initial diagnosis of ASD throughout the lifespan. 

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define adaptive behavior & differentiate adaptive behavior from cognition or ability
    2. Describe common profiles of adaptive functioning in ASD for individuals with and without cognitive impairment
    3. Identify effective treatment strategies for enhancing adaptive functioning

  • BASC-3 and ADHD

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    This training will focus on development and application of a comprehensive approach to careful diagnosis and specific interventions for ADHD under the BASC-3 models of assessment and intervention.  The BASC-3 models focus  not just on eligibility, but developing a comprehensive diagnosis and understanding of the student. Differential diagnosis that leads to a process of identification of evidence-based interventions tailored to student needs will be emphasized.  Current DSM 5 criteria are emphasized in the diagnostic process but matching to interventions is also considered important.   Actuarial approaches will be emphasized but the need to integrate these approaches to individual children will also be stressed and approaches to involving parents in the process will be discussed.  A brief discussion of the history of ADHD is given and the controversies surrounding its diagnosis addressed.  Comprehensive behaviorally based differential diagnosis is then emphasized, leading to both psychosocial and educational interventions. The need and means of monitoring treatment effectiveness are also addressed.
