What You Will Learn

Too often, students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are excluded from general education classrooms in order to receive applied behavior analysis (ABA) interventions in segregated settings. This does a huge disservice to students with ASD because when they learn skills in isolated settings, they often lack the ability to generalize what they learned and to apply these skills in natural environments. There are also multiple learning opportunities that occur in the general education environment that cannot be replicated in segregated settings.

This engaging 90-minute webinar will provide a framework for designing and implementing applied behavior analysis interventions within general education classrooms to meet the needs of students with ASD.

Although students with ASD may need specialized interventions in order to fully engage and learn in general education classrooms, this does not mean that teachers working in inclusive classrooms cannot learn how to provide what these students need. While it is not expected that all teachers of students with ASD will become experts in ABA, they can learn how to apply ABA teaching principles to improve learning outcomes of students with ASD.
This webinar will:

  • Provide educators with step-by-step procedures for assessing students to determine goals for ABA interventions in general ed classrooms.
  • Enable participants to develop ABA teaching procedures for the selected goals and to create easy-to-use data collection procedures for monitoring student progress.
  • Give guidelines for working as a collaborative team during the assessment, development and implementation phases
  • Provide specific suggestions for roles of the different team members on the ABA implementation team.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand best practices when including students with ASD in general education classrooms
  • Cognize the rationale for embedded ABA Interventions
  • Plan and implement ABA interventions:
    • Assessment
    • Goal setting
    • Designing interventions
    • Monitoring progress
    • Collaboration among team members
