Brenda Fossett, PhD, BCBA-D

Parents often assume that difficult behaviors during daily routines, including bed and meal times, are part of their child’s autism and must be endured. This workshop will provide parents and caregivers, including early childhood educators, with a practical overview of Positive Behavior Support (PBS) strategies.
