CEU Course Description

As more and more individuals are being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and there is an increase in online instruction being used to meet the educational needs of students, it is important that parents, teachers, and practitioners use evidence-based practices that are able to promote independence and growth for individuals.  Self-management is an evidence-based practice that includes a set of procedures that can be used to further develop adaptive skills as well as reduce problem behaviors (Erhard et al., 2022).  It is a skill that can be used across a multitude of behaviors and improve an individual’s autonomy across a wide range of skills and contexts.  Additionally, social validity has been documented within the literature that is surrounding self-management (Erhard et al., 2022).  Interventions and strategies that use self-management skills are easy to create and integrate into one’s life.  They are also practical for both parents and teachers to use within their respective environments.  Therefore, given the information that supports the efficacy and feasibility of self-management skills, interventions should be promoted that involve the use of these skills for individuals with ASD (Erhard et al., 2022).   In this course, participants will learn the (1) benefits of using self-management strategies to change behavior, (2) identify how to implement self-management strategies into one’s daily life, and (3) determine how to select different antecedent and consequence-based strategies that can be integrated into the self-management process.
