Abstract: Easterseals Southern California has been serving individuals with Autism and other developmental disabilities for many years. The recent growth in ABA based services for individuals with an autism spectrum disorder has led to the rapid hiring and training of RBTs, BCaBAs, and BCBAs. This panel will consist of several members of the Easterseals Training and Quality Leadership team who have trained over 2000 staff in the past five years. The panel will discuss how evidenced-based training methodologies are adapted to various learning environments. They will also comment on training implementation plans to meet and maintain standards for training and supervision related to BACB certificants, while accounting for the need to have these individuals providing service with a short latency after hire. Topics include but are not limited to: • Fluency Training • Video Modeling • E-learning/Online Training • Active Student Responding • Behavioral Skills Training • Competency Based Training • Feedback during Skills Practice • In-field Follow-Up • Training Goal Setting The presentations/discussion will be followed by a question/answer period.
