ABA & Your Inclusive Classroom - SINGLE USER

AccuTrain

Grades K-12

What You Will Learn:

Students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are increasingly being included in general education classrooms – because multiple learning opportunities occur in the general ed environment that cannot be replicated in segregated settings. Inclusive settings have been demonstrated to enable students with ASD to more effectively generalize and apply the skills that they have learned.

In segregated settings, however, students with ASD would benefit from evidence-based applied behavior analysis (ABA) interventions. Most general ed teachers have not received the training they need to put ABA into practice in a straightforward and easy-to-apply format.

This engaging 90-minute research-based webinar with author, professor and ABA expert Dr. Debra Leach will provide a framework for designing and implementing applied behavior analysis interventions within general ed classrooms. Although students with ASD may need specialized interventions in order to fully engage, learning basic ABA principles can help general ed teachers better work with these students.
Of course, most general ed teachers will not become experts in ABA. But they can learn how to apply ABA teaching principles to improve the success of students with ASD.

Webinar Highlights:

This webinar will:
  • Provide educators with step-by-step procedures to determine goals for ABA interventions in general ed classrooms
  • Enable participants to develop ABA teaching procedures 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.

    • Learn best practices when including students with ASD in general education classrooms
    • Understand the rationale for embedded ABA Interventions
    • Plan and implement ABA interventions:
