It's All About YOU: Using Behavior Analytic and Instructional Strategies to Improve Student Outcomes

October 19, 2021 from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm

In this four-day training, participants will learn evidence-based instructional strategies needed to work students with behavioral challenges, students with ASD and other students with complex needs.  Intervention always includes instruction!  Strategies will include teaching methods to use before, during and after behaviors occur.   This training is designed to provide participants with tools to intervene before instructional errors or behaviors can occur, resulting in measurable student progress. This Train the Trainer model will provide participants with training tools to go back to their districts and train direct care staff, teachers, other service providers, etc. Participants will be required to demonstrate competency in the skills learned in this training. This training is designed for people who work directly with students within the classroom setting, trainers, direct service providers, educational leaders, coordinators or other professionals charged with providing training to other adult learners and who are confident in doing so in an applied learning context.  Teams of two or more are recommended. Coffee and bottled water is provided. Lunch (on your own).

Day 2

Learners will practice identifying potential reinforcers and plan when to deliver reinforcement.

Learners will practice prompt and prompt fading procedures.

Day 3

Learners will identify and practice the components of a shaping procedure.

Learners will break down a behavior into individual components and write a task analysis.

Learners will implement Errorless Teaching Procedures and Error Correction.

Learners will practice collecting data on Skill Acquisition and Treatment Fidelity.

Day 4

Learners will describe and analyze steps to improve staff cohesiveness and training, then develop a plan for their own setting.

Learners will design, implement, and evaluate a professional development structure using the Behavior Skills Training model to improve treatment integrity. 

Learners will review treatment integrity and performance feedback.
