TAIP Online Workshop
Language-Based ABA/VB Classrooms
Description from Partington Behavior Analysts homepage:
This workshop will review critical components for establishing and providing effective language-based behavioral interventions within classrooms.
Research has clearly established the effectiveness of intensive behavioral intervention with children with autism. A great proportion of these services have been provided to children in 1 to 1 training sessions outside of a public school classroom. However, it is possible and desirable to incorporate these effective educational services within public school classroom environments.
A review of issues related to, and specific recommendations for staff training, classroom structure and schedule, curriculum development, small group (1 to 2+) instructional strategies, skill acquisition tracking, and behavioral consultation will be provided. This workshop is highly recommended for educators, parents and consultants who wish to help public schools develop effective, data-based classroom services.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify critical teaching skills that must be demonstrated by teachers and instructional assistants in a language-based, ABA classroom.
- Specify components of a classroom schedule that will allow for high frequency of learner responding to high-priority learning tasks.
- Identify how to assess learner skills and construct an IEP to ensure the development of language and other important learner skills.
- Identify methods for implementing behavioral language training strategies in a small group format.
- Specify critical components of a classroom-wide, data collection system and a system for monitoring student progress.
- Identify how the critical elements of discrete trial instruction can be implemented within the child’s typical daily events.
