Oswego County Autism Task Force to Host Parent Seminar

The Oswego County Autism Task Force will be hosting a parent seminar on November 29.

“Effective Parent Involvement in the Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) and Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP) Process” will be presented by Kristine O’Brien, Parent Outreach Coordinator from SUPAC (Syracuse University Parent Advocacy Center).

Often, behavior challenges related to a student’s disability can interfere with learning.

This seminar will assist parents in understanding the school’s responsibility in
addressing behaviors using the functional behavior assessment (FBA) and behavior
intervention plans (BIPs).

Parents will learn how to be involved and effectively communicate with their child’s team during this process.

The seminar will take place at the First Presbyterian Church, Wilcox Hall, 4361 Church
St., Mexico.

Registration and a light dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the presentation going from 6 – 8 p.m.

Please contact Tammy Thompson at (315) 349-3510 to register by November 26.

Limited child care is available, please inquire while registering.

This parent seminar will assist the task force in its mission to provide information that
enchances the lives of those touched by Autism Spectrum Disorder in Oswego County.
