Course Description: ABA’s scientifically documented outcomes of maximal benefit to children with autism have been achieved via early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) with children under age six. Many children who have received EIBI struggle with the demands of a complex environment. Teachers, clinicians, researchers, parents and experts in ASD were asked to identify the most important skills needed by these students for success in general education classrooms. This presentation compiles the collective wisdom and perspectives of these experts.
- Identify five skill areas identified by a group of autism experts as most important for students with autism experiencing success in regular classrooms.
- Describe choral responding and response cards and how these techniques make group instruction more effective.
- Briefly describe how Heads Together and class-wide peer tutoring systems counter the problems that make many collaborative learning activities ineffective.
Keywords: Education, autism, EIBI, teaching, classroom, mainstream
Rating: This course is recommended for BCBAs, BCaBAs and, potentially, teachers with a basic understanding of behavioral principles who are working or interested in the broad area of education or individual teaching with children diagnosed with autism.
