“Hands on Behavior Parent Training Workshop”
The Hands On Behavior Parent Training workshop, created by Sally Grevemberg, has been successfully taught to countless families of children of all ages and various developmental disabilities since 1998. This course focuses on familiarizing families with evidence based behavioral strategies to decrease unwanted and interfering behaviors. Topics covered include: understanding behavioral patterns, how to maximize reward strategies, tools for increasing positive skills, how to avoid common mistakes and implementing natural consequences. The course focuses on a “hands on” teaching approach, allows parents to discuss and apply these strategies and techniques to their own unique situations. Professionals will learn strategies to support families whose children are facing behavior challenges. **This workshop will satisfy the class requirement for parents whose children receive services through Valley Mountain Regional Center (VMRC) who wish to access Behavioral Intervention Services (BIS) if indicated on the IFSP or IPP**

Scholarships will be available to parents of children receiving Early Start services who live in Amador, Calaveras, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tuolumne Counties. A limited number of scholarships are available for parents of preschool age children. Registration fee for local attendees is $50; $75 for those from out of area.
