FREE CEU: Teaching Caregivers and Therapists to Play Effectively
Presenter: Taylor Macmillan MA, BCBA, LBA

A common obstacle many BCBAs that work with children with autism spectrum disorders face is teaching adults (both parents/caregivers and behavior technicians) to play with children, and taking advantage of learning opportunities within play. While play comes naturally to some, others have more difficulty contriving or joining in a play scheme. When working with children, play is a pivotal component of pairing with reinforcement and creating learning opportunities. It’s important that those on a client’s clinical team understand the significance of play and how to use it as an effective teaching strategy. This presentation will provide an overview of naturalistic developmental behavioral interventions, natural environment teaching, and how to use behavioral skills training to support therapists and caregivers implement these teaching models with clients.

Taylor Macmillan MA, BCBA, LBA
Clinical Supervisor @Verbal Beginnings
Taylor Macmillan is located in Maryland and is currently a BCBA working with Verbal Beginnings clients in the field. Before she became a BCBA, she worked as an RBT for 4 years and as an RBT Training Coordinator for 1 year. She says being a BCBA is amazing because 1) she gets to spend her time helping others acquire skills that give them more opportunities to access experiences available in their environment and 2) she gets to spread her love for ABA to her supervisees! Outside of work, she is usually found hanging out with her family or working on crafty projects.
