This is one of CARE’s most popular and sought-after multi-day training initiatives developed specifically for public schools who are seeking training on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) for staff assigned to work with students with ASD and related disorders. The training consists of a mixture of didactic lecture and hands-on training with students identified with Autism and related disorders.
To introduce basic behavioral principles (prompting, shaping, reinforcement, task analyses, pairing, forward and backward chaining, etc.) that staff can apply in their classrooms to meet the individualized needs of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and related disorders.
To provide an opportunity for participants to observe discrete trial training, practice the instructional methods; receive corrective feedback, and specific praise related to the daily training goals in a hands-on learning environment using a behavior skills training approach that has been found to be highly successful for training adults.
To become proficient in the use of discrete trial instruction (DTI) that is a teaching methodology within Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) with a focus on beginning stages of instruction of learning to learn prerequisite skills (compliance, attending, imitating, matching, and functional communication skills).
General education and special education teachers, paraprofessionals, SLPs, OTs, APE Specialists, LSSPs, Ed Diagnosticians, Behavior Specialists and others working directly with students with ASD and related disorders from preschool through high school.
