Dr. Linda LeBlanc, Director of Research and Clinical Services at Trumpet Behavioral Health, will be a prominent speaker at the Association for Behavior Analysis International’s (ABAI) Ninth Annual Autism Conference: Innovative, Science-Based Approaches. The conference will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 23-25 at the JW Marriot Las Vegas Resort & Spa.
Dr. LeBlanc is among the conference’s nine invited presenters, who are some of the foremost leaders in the field of behavior analysis and how it applies to the treatment and study of Autism. Her pre-conference workshop, “Early Intervention for Young Children With Autism: Best Practices for Receptive Language Instruction” is scheduled Friday, January 23, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm.
“I hope people will come away from this workshop with a great understanding of how to design optimal receptive language programming,” said Dr. LeBlanc.
ABAI’s autism conference will also have poster sessions, symposia, a bookstore and numerous exhibitors as well as offer valuable networking and job connection opportunities.
Additionally, on Friday morning, the conference will offer training on current procedural terminology (CPT) codes. This two-hour session will address the newly approved (effective July 1, 2014) American Medical Association CPT Category III codes for adaptive behavior assessment and treatment, which, for billing purposes, define procedures and services performed by behavior analysts. This training is free to all registered conference attendees.
