An Accomplishment Based Approach to Defining, Measuring and Coaching Job Performance

Presenter(s): Carl Binder

Abstract: Workers deliver value to their organizations by producing accomplishments or work outputs. We can measure, train, and coach the performance of individuals by identifying those work outputs and creating job expectations accordingly. This workshop teaches a process for creating Individual Performance Maps (AKA Customer Diagrams), defining criteria for "good" work outputs, and then monitoring performance by counting work outputs that meet criteria. Such descriptions of jobs also provide a foundation for coaching and supervision, which we will discuss, time permitting.

CEUs: 2 

Objective(s): 1. Identify the major work outputs of an individual or job role; 2. Define criteria for "good" instances of work outputs; 3. Monitor, tally, count, and even chart work outputs to measure performance; 4. Use work outputs as a basis for coaching and supervision

Applying Precision Teaching to motor movements, mindfulness, and everything in between: Channel wrapping your way to effective program design

Presenter(s): Jonathan Amey

Abstract: The goal of this workshop is to expose the attendee to the many ways Precision Teaching can be applied to the full scope of student learning. Attendees will leave the workshop with a scope and sequence for targeting emotional regulation and psychomotor movements as well as a toolbox of strategies for tackling barriers to instruction in handwriting, math, and reading. Emotional regulation will include programs for breathing, muscle relaxation, and imagery. Psychomotor programs will include the Big 6+6 and gross motor movements vital for everyday activities. Handwriting, math, and reading will be discussed with an emphasis on careful implementation of the learning channels through channel wrapping.

CEUs: 2 

Objective(s): 1. Participants will define terminology related to motor planning and emotional regulation; 2. Participants will identify the 3 main muscle groups related to motor foundation skills; 3. Participants will design a motor scope of program for an activity of daily living; 4. Participants will develop a sequence of emotional programs to target breathing and prosody; 5. Participants will utilize the learning channel matrix to wrap 3 unique skill areas.

Use Your EARS to Change How People Work Together So That Every Student or Client Makes Efficient Progress

Presenter(s): Guy Bruce

Abstract: Organizational Performance Engineering is the application of behavior analysis to change how people work together so that every client or student makes efficient progress. It is a pragmatic change process because it changes provider resources, training, and management when a client or student is not making efficient progress.

CEUs: 2 

Objective(s): 1. Evaluate student or client performance and progress using frequency, celeration efficiency, and celeration measures; 2. Analyze causes of provider performance problems using accurate measures to identify Can-Do performance problems due to inadequate provider resources, Know-How performance problems due to inadequate provider training, and Want-To performance problems due to inadequate management; 3. Recommend solutions to provider performance problems which may include more efficient provider resources, training, and management.

Expanding Inclusivity Requires a Commitment To Uprooting Racism: Charting Micro-Aggressions

Presenter(s): August Stockwell 

Abstract: SCS has made a commitment to address social justice issues,and one example is systemic racism including police violence and the school-to-prison-pipeline. To succeed in this endeavor, we need to develop a more diverse group of charters. This requires: 1) creating a detailed outreach and support plan with the goal of increasing the diversity of the SCC community, 2) acknowledging and assessing our own racial assumptions and positions of privilege in order to create an active anti-racist verbal community, 3) and creating a healthy and safe place for people of all backgrounds. Where to start? First, we must acknowledge and evaluate our own behavioral history by teasing out what we have been ‘carefully taught’. Secondly, we must identify when and why our response is often complacency, instead of action, which has the consequence of reinforcing systemic racism and other forms of oppression. This workshop will focus on how privilege is sometimes the antecedent for intentional and unintentional racism. We will define and identify micro-aggression behaviors (e.g., are small insults, stings, and indignities) that occur between individuals and perpetuate the oppressions of another group. Participants will have the opportunity to do some discrimination exercises and discussion on the effects that microaggressions has on the receiver (e.g., anxiety, fear, and hyper-vigilance) and the deliverer (complacency,lack of empathy for others). Lastly, we will discuss how to respond when we have committed a micro-aggression, and how we can respond when we observe one occurring, and attendees will be encouraged to brainstorm other responses that can function as alternatives to microaggressions. The workshop will explore ways to use the chart to count both our own inner-behaviors and vocal verbal behavior. The SCC community stands on the premise that knowing that the frequency of our behavior is important to make effective changes in behavior.   We will show examples of personal charts on actual microaggressions and charts of those that have experienced microaggressions, as well as charts that include tracking of alternative responses targeted for increase.

CEUs: 2

Objective(s): 1. Attendees will state the definitions of privilege, systemic oppression, microaggression, and intent vs. impact; 2. Given a scenario involving a microaggression, attendees will state or select why it is hurtful and its potential impact; 3. Attendees will describe the ways in which charting can be helpful in illuminating the occurrence and impacts of microaggressions, as well as how it can be used as a self-monitoring/self-management tool for behavior change; 4. Given a situation in which a microaggression is observed to occur, attendees will state an example of how to provide feedback to the person involved.

Using Technology to Quickly Create Semi/ Auto-graded Practice Materials

Presenter(s): Carrie Kirk

Abstract: This hands-on session consists of a “how-to” workshop for anyone interested in learning how to create digital practice materials that are graded quickly or automatically. In this session, a brief overview will be provided on identifying learning targets from an existing curriculum and sequencing them. Following the overview, a detailed demonstration will be provided on how to capture time and create practice materials for students. The demonstration will show how to use free and inexpensive technology such as Google Forms, Nearpod, Snagit, Microsoft Excel, Canvas, FlipGrid, and other technology for developing the practice materials.

CEUs: 2

Objective(s): 1. Complete a tool-prerequisite-component analysis of a selected topic; 2. Create a practice sheet within a five-minute interval using a shared template; 3. Engage with two digital platforms to create practice materials.

Breaking Binaries

Abstract: The first question many expectant parents are asked is: What "gender" is the baby? First, is this the right question? What is the difference between sex and gender anyways? But more importantly, why is this question so important? This is a workshop meant to encourage real conversations about how binary assumptions about gender (e.g., what it means to be a man or a woman) and sexual identities (e.g, straight/gay) impact us, individually and collectively. In this workshop, we will differentiate sex, gender, and sexuality, examine the assumptions that underpin sex, gender, and sexual identity categories in the US and explore how these assumptions are problematic and contribute to various forms of oppression.

CEUs: 2

Objective(s): 1. Demonstrate openness to new perspectives surrounding gender and ability to listen and respond to new ideas or old ideas in new ways; 2. Ability to evaluate diverse perspectives, and navigate the ambiguity and complexity that is gender, sexuality, and sex; 3. Ability to assess and reassess one's role in reproducing forms of structural inequality like cisnormativity, and heteronormativity; 4. Ability to use and understand the importance of gender-affirming language and pronouns; 5. Ability to break gender and sexual binaries in practice.

Designing Instruction that Honors Client Assent Withdrawal, Promotes Self-Advocacy, & Minimizes Harm

Presenter(s): August Stockwell

Abstract: Unpublished Justice Department data suggest that individuals with intellectual and learning disabilities are at least seven times more likely to experience sexual assault than their neurotypical peers and that 86% of these assaults are committed by a non-stranger (Shapiro, Anderson, Benincasa, & Van Woerkom, 2018). Because of this, behavior analysts and other helping professionals have a crucial role in supporting client development of self-advocacy skills, which involve giving and removing of assent. We also have a responsibility to help create environments in which client autonomy and preferences are respected. This training reviews the BACB ethical codes relevant to client autonomy and assent and outlines ways to address these skills from an instructional design perspective. Empirically supported literature and SCCs will be presented, and questions and discussion will be welcomed throughout the workshop. Practice activities will be provided to encourage application of the content, presenters will facilitate a discussion of several clinical scenarios, and attendees will have the opportunity to explore how these strategies can best be implemented with the client populations they serve.

CEUs: 2

Objective(s): 1. Select examples of both vocal and non-vocal responses indicating assent and removal of assent; 2. Identify the ways in which training over-compliance can be harmful for clients; 3. Select the key elements of an assent withdrawal instructional program; 4. Given a scenario, select a response in line with BACB ethical codes and promotes client autonomy and choice.
