Limited Capacity seats available

This session describes findings from three single case studies in which we taught children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder to use self-management strategies to improve compliance with home-related routines and/or improve fluency of math facts. The studies took place in each child???s home at times the families had identified as having high rates of problem behavior. The session fits with the theme of the TASH conference, Gateway to Equity, because helping children with disabilities learn strategies to manage their own behavior increases their autonomy and makes it more likely they will be successful in inclusive school, community, and employment settings. After this session, participants in this session will be able to: 1. describe some of the key behavioral challenges of children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). 2. describe at least four basic self-management strategies they can teach to children with FASD or other individuals in need of behavioral support. 3. explain how to teach children with disabilities, such as FASD, to use simple self-management strategies to improve their social or academic behaviors.
