Titill fyrri vinnustofu: Developing effective instructional programs for students with ASDs: Goal selection, contextual fit, troubleshooting, and evaluation

Nánar um vinnustofuna:

Identifying and prioritizing skills to teach children with autism is a critical first step to providing effective treatment. Skill deficits are present across all areas of adaptive functioning, with communication and social skills being areas of greatest need.  It is difficult for clinicians, teachers, and parents to determine which skills to teach first.  The Core Skills Assessment developed at the New England Center for Children will be reviewed and assessment results presented for students across ages, programs, and ability levels.

 Learning Objectives:

1.   List critical factors related to selecting and prioritizing goals
2.   Discuss the importance of the fit between the selected goals, the instructional strategy, and the context in which the student is to be taught.
3.   Describe steps that should be taken when a student is not making progress
4.   Understand the importance of evaluation in the design and refinement of a program of instruction

Nánar um vinnustofuna:

 Behavior change is helpful to an individual only to the extent that this change is seen across environments relevant to them.  Although the importance of the generality of behavior change has been emphasized by behavior analysts for over four decades there remains work to be done to encourage practitioners to apply recommended methods to improve learners’ performance across settings, and to support them in this application.  In this workshop we will 1) discuss the meaning of the terms generalization, generality, and general repertoire, 2) discuss the importance of considerations of use as part of the initial planning for teaching a skill, 2) review strategies for establishing general repertoires, and 3) facilitate exercises whereby attendees will practice these strategies.  Strategies to be discussed include those offered by Stokes and Baer in 1977, as well as general case analysis, matrix training, and generalization mapping.  Skill areas specifically addressed will include imitation, community skills, and social skills.

Learning Objectives:
Through participation in this workshop, attendees will:

1. Describe the concept, general repertoire, and describe why it is important to program for these
2. Design a matrix for matrix training
3. Define observational learning, and distinguish from imitation
