Video of the Week: Communication Supports for Problem Behavior with Dr. Pat Mirenda

Last month, it was such a great honor to host Dr. Pat Mirenda at the UM-NSU Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD). As some of you know, she was the presenter at our annual Issues in Autism Conference, and also was kind enough to record a shorter version of the presentation for the CARD eLearning site, CARD VINE. You can view that presentation below, and get the handout for it here.
