FEATURED PRESENTATIONS

TELE-PRESENCE ROBOTS


Tele-Presence Robots are part of a sub field of Tele-robotics.  Tele-robotics is an area of robotics that focuses on the control of semi-autonomous robots from a distance utilizing modern forms of digital communication such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.  Tele-presence robots specifically gives the user the feeling of being present where the robot is located instead of where they are actually located.  Here at the Tech B conference we will discuss cutting edge research utilizing tele-presence robotics in the treatment of Autism.

BACB CE PROVIDED FOR THIS EVENT

MILO ROBOT


The MILO robot is an semi-autonomous, easily design-able, humanoid robot originally designed by Robots4Ausitm .  Milo robots have been used for research and education purposes in a variety of educational institutions around the world.  The Tech B conference is proud to announce that we will be showcasing this fascinating wonder of science and technology that will allow conference attendees to peer into the future of education and instruction.  This year we will be presenting research on the use of the MILO robot in ABA therapy!

Moataz Eltoukhy, PhD

Dr. Eltoukhy is an Assistant Professor at the School of Education & Human Development at the University of Miami. His Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are in Mechatronics; he then earned his Ph.D. in Biomechanics from the College of Engineering at the University of Miami. In 2013, Dr. Eltoukhy joined the School of Education & Human Development where his research is focused on the development of innovative clinic-based motion analysis tools as well as the use of humanoid robots in elementary public schools. Dr. Eltoukhy’s work with humanoid robots is focused primarily on investigating their effectiveness on promoting both healthy eating habits and Computational Thinking in school day and after-school settings. Dr. Eltoukhy published numerous journal articles, book chapters, and conference proceeding papers. He is also serves as a reviewer and editorial board member for several journals in his field.
Aaron Fischer, PhD

Aaron Fischer, PhD

Dr. Fischer has been working with individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families for over 10 years. He graduated from the University of Miami, where he earned a bachelors degree in psychology and worked as a research coordinator at the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities.  Dr. Fischer completed his masters and doctoral degree in school psychology at Louisiana State University.  Before arriving at the University of Utah in 2014, he completed his predoctoral internship in clinical psychology at the May Institute in Massachusetts.  His internship and graduate work focused on providing evidence-based practice in schools, hospitals, and mental health clinics to children with disabilities and their families.  Specifically, Dr. Fischer’s clinical interests concentrate on the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents with ASD, as well a providing support and training to their families.  As such, his scholarship is considerably influenced by his applied work in those areas. Additionally, Dr. Fischer has experience in the assessment and treatment of problem behavior, as well as the acquisition of adaptive skills, in individuals with ASD and developmental disabilities.

Carolyn Garver, PhD

Carolyn Garver, PhD

Dr. Garver has provided diagnostics, treatment and care for people with autism for the past 36 years serving as the Director of the Autism Treatment Center since 1979.  Dr. Garver has presented at numerous conferences in the US and abroad and continues to provide training to the community on characteristics and issues related to persons on the autism spectrum.   Dr. Garver developed an interest in research and participated in a number of projects which focused on Equine Assisted Activities, Assistive Technology Devices for Adults,   Sensory issues in autism, and a biomedical study that looked at glutathione levels in children with autism. Currently she is working on a project with a social robot, Robots4Autism.Dr. Garver taught as an Adjunct Professor teaching Epidemiology at Texas Woman’s University.  She has written several articles and served as a contributing editor for materials published regarding the autism spectrum. She also serves as a member of the National Association of Residential Providers for Adults with Autism (NARPAA) and Advancing Futures for Adults with Autism (AFAA).

TELEPRESENCE ROBOT

Behavioral Teleconsultation in Schools through Telepresence Robots

Consultation is regarded as the primary service delivery framework in school psychology and is considered a practice that “permeates all aspects of service delivery” (National Association of School Psychologists, 2010, p. 4). By incorporating technology into school consultation, practitioners, including behavior analysts, have greater access to teachers, families, and students with disabilities. The current study evaluated the application of contemporary technologies, specifically telepresence robotics, in the practice of behavioral consultation. Various outcomes of behavioral telepresence consultation were evaluated using single-case research design, and included the feasibility of teacher conducted functional analyses, rates of student compliance, and acquisition of basic math skills.  Data showed that behavioral telepresence consultation was an effective modality to improve compliance, promote the acquisition of basic math skills, and to conduct teacher implemented functional analyses, for students with developmental disabilities.

VIDEO MODELING

Video-Based Instruction

Video-based instruction (VBI) is an evidence-based practice for teaching children and adults with ASD.  Numerous skills have been taught to this population using this strategy, including language, play, academic, and daily living skills, to name a few. VBI is typically implemented as a treatment package, making it difficult for researchers and practitioners to delineate the most salient features of the approach. During this presentation, three recent studies will be shared whereby one component of VBI, voice-over narration, was investigated. The first two studies were comparative single subject designs where we examined video prompting with and without narration. The third study was a demonstration single subject design where we investigated video prompting without narration. Results from this line of inquiry indicate that preference for, and effectiveness of, voice-over narration may be idiosyncratic. These results and implications for practice will be discussed.
