Autism Research Group (ARG), a nonprofit dedicated to using science to improve the quality of life for individuals with autism and their families, will host a one-day workshop titled, “Teaching Perspective Taking to Individuals with Autism” on Nov. 6, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the Westlake Village Inn in Westlake Village. Attendees will learn how to apply relational frame theory to make behavior analytic treatment programs for individuals with autism spectrum disorder more comprehensive, progressive, and powerful. Continuing education units (CEUs) and complimentary lunch will be offered. Online registration is required at http://workshop.autismresearchgroup.org.

The workshop will feature presentations by ARG Executive Director Jonathan Tarbox, PhD, BCBA-D, who will provide an introduction to relational frame theory; Marianne L. Jackson, PhD, BCBA-D, who will discuss a relational frame theory approach to perspective taking and research; and Adel Najdowski, PhD, BCBA-D, who will discuss behavioral research and practical strategies related to teaching perspective taking.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in every 88 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), making it more prevalent than juvenile diabetes, pediatric cancer, and childhood AIDS combined. Research shows ASD is the fastest growing developmental disability in the United States.

“The workshop will provide professionals with critical information to develop the most comprehensive behavioral intervention program possible in curriculum planning,” said Jonathan Tarbox, PhD, BCBA-D.
