Do your students struggle with transitions? Do they get “stuck?” Do your students know how to “push your buttons?”
Become a more effective educator to your students with ASD, ADHD, OCD, and related disorders (and all of your students). Feel more confident and less stressed. Learn and practice research-based, proven techniques developed right here in Rochester.  Increase your knowledge base, and elevate your confidence as an educator. 

  • Learn the effects of autonomic dysregulation in autism spectrum disorder.
  • Demonstrate the use and limitations of the ERA approach to behavioral transitions.
  • Learn appropriate use of engagement and disengagement in reinforcing behavior.
  • List the four steps and significance of “station identification” breaks. The Parent Effectiveness (PEP) Program was developed by Dr. Laurence Sugarman, Director of the Center for Applied Psychophysiology and Self-regulation (CAPS) at RIT.  Over 150 families in the Rochester area have benefitted from this innovative training program.  The PEP Program applies Dr. Sugarman’s clinical techniques to school and home-based interactions with individuals with ASD and related conditions.
