Baker College students are invited to attend a free lecture presentation on Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapies and techniques for the healthcare professional. ABA is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA therapy applies an understanding of how behavior works to real situations with the goal of increasing behaviors that are helpful and decreasing behaviors that are harmful or affect learning.
The lecture will be given by Scott McPhee MS, BCBA, clinical director of Autism Spectrum Therapies. Founded in 2001, Autism Spectrum Therapies (AST) is one of the leading providers of Applied Behavior Analysis in the country. Led by a team of clinicians, AST utilizes evidence-based practices with a family-focused approach to ensure the best possible results.
Scott received his bachelor’s in psychology from Western Michigan University and a master’s in clinical behavioral psychology from Eastern Michigan University. He has presented at numerous state conferences regarding parent training/education, working with adolescents with ASD, and multidisciplinary collaboration with professionals outside of ABA. He also teaches graduate-level courses at Wayne State University.
Students planning to attend this event are encouraged to RSVP via email to Sarah Card PTA ACCE, at [email protected].
