Functional Communication Training (FCT) is an evidence-based practice with decades of proven results in reducing challenging behaviors in students with Autism.

This workshop will teach providers, parents, guardians, and teachers fundamental techniques to use FCT with adolescents with Autism. Specifically, we will address ways to minimize time constraints while determining the function of a student's behavior, choosing a reinforcer based on preference, and the use of fading the responses so that student learning will generalize across environments.
