About Our Speaker

Jeremy Flowers is a Licensed Behavior Specialist and consultant with eight years of experience in the intellectual disabilities field. He specializes in positive behavior supports for people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Flowers is the CEO and lead Behavior Specialist Consultant of Able Behavior Supports, an agency that provides enhanced behavior supports to people with autism and intellectual disabilities. The mission of Able Behavior Supports is to deliver the highest quality of service by focusing on the client's goals and involving their natural supports to help them achieve those goals.

Program Description

This program will teach caregivers of people with disabilities how to prevent and replace problem behaviors by using positive behavior supports. The audience will learn:

  • How behavior analysts use natural consequences and rearrange settings to promote appropriate behavior.
  • Simple techniques to use every day, such as visual supports, first-then rehearsal, and providing choices.
  • How to prevent aggressive and challenging behavior.

This program has been developed with caregivers in mind and will be interactive. Audience members will have opportunities to create their own plans, discuss new ideas and share their personal experiences, and ask questions of the speaker.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this program, participants will:

  1. Identify behavior patterns and their causes using a behavior analysis approach.
  2. Use positive supports to influence behavior toward their goals
