Autism
Turning your Early Childhood Classroom into a ShaperSpace! Learning the Principles of Applied Behavior Analysis While Increasing Language and Communication Skills in Students with Autism (Board Certified Autism Technician Series)



ESC-20 provides training and technical assistance for families and professionals working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorders in a variety of school settings.
 



Important Session Information:


This series will provide participants with a framework that guides the teaching of language and communication skills for children with autism. This offering focuses on the behavioral approach to teaching communication skills to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. This approach is based on B.F. Skinner’s analysis of verbal behavior and the research of Michael, Sundberg, Partington, and others.

Participants in this series will learn (1) to conduct a Behavioral Language Assessment, (2) to select the most appropriate form of communication for a child (vocal, signing, pointing to or exchanging pictures, or activating an augmentative device), and (3) to select the communication responses and supporting skills that should be taught first. The series includes the recommended teaching procedures for those children who have no formal communication skills to those that are near conversational speakers. The presenters also describe and demonstrate errorless teaching, specific quick-transfer (prompting and fading) procedures, and the use of both discrete trial training in the natural environment and during intensive teaching session.

This training program is based on the Board Certified Autism Technician (BCAT) Task List and is designed to meet the 40-hour training requirement for the Board Certified Autism Technician (BCAT) credential.

The program is offered independently of the BICC.
