Use of Quality Data to Drive Instruction

Important Session Information:

This presentation will address two core developmental foundations for social engagement and learning: social communication and emotional regulation. These are also the most common area of challenge faced by young children with Autism and other neurodevelopmental disabilities including learning disabilities, language disabilities, ADHD and sensory processing disorders. An individualized, family-centered approach based on extensive research in child and human development and disabilities will be presented, drawing from the SCERTS Model, an assessment and intervention framework developed by Dr. Prizant and his colleagues. Videos will be used to illustrate principles and practices. This seminar will offer up to date information for supporting young children in everyday activities, utilizing a person and family-centered approach that respects and integrates knowledge and practice from a variety of disciplines.

Session Objectives:

  1. Participants will identify two developmental components of social communication and two functional objectives for each for young children.
  2. Participants will identify two developmental components of emotional regulation and functional objectives under each for young children
  3. Participants will apply three criteria for selecting the highest priority goals and objectives for children who demonstrate challenges in both social communication and emotional regulation.

Handouts will be provided electronically 1-2 days prior to the workshop.  Please bring a device or a printed copy of the handouts to interact with them during the session.
