Virtual Conference: Learning in Groups – Curriculum Considerations for Children with Autism

Presented by Bridget A. Taylor, Psy.D., BCBA-D of Alpine Learning

Register at https://nysrcasd.org/events/810/registrations/new

Early intensive intervention programs for children with autism start with instruction presented in a one-to-one format, with an adult and a child.  If learning is progressive however, we must help children with autism eventually acquire new information within group contexts. The first hour of this presentation will review research-based strategies to increase responding within group instructional contexts as well as procedures to increase observational learning of children with autism within these contexts. Video-taped examples will be used to illustrate instructional strategies.

During the second hour of this course,  participants will be discover why learning in a group may be challenging for children with autism, identify the components of observational learning and recognize research-based procedures that could be implemented within a group to increase rate of responding. The last 15 minutes will be used for Q & A.

AHSA, BCBA, CTLE, OT/OTA, PT/PTA  CEUs are available for a fee of $15.00.
