Children with autism may present with performance deficits such as slow acquisition, inconsistent performance, failure to generalize, and behavior that may interfere with learning. Alternatively, some children with autism may be able to acquire new responses relatively quickly with specific variations in instruction. To appropriately match an instructional procedure to an individual learner and target skill, behavior analysts should be able to engage in a system of problem solving to identify stimuli associated with improved learning. This should include an assessment of the specific variables related to the three and four term contingency, such as motivation, prompting and error correction procedures. This webinar will present a problem-solving framework along with instructional variables to consider when matching a teaching procedure to an individual learner and skill.
Identify common performance deficits of learners with autism.
Identify variables related to the three-term contingency that should be examined when programs are not moving in the desired direction.
Identify several variations in prompting procedures that may enhance learning for specific learners.
Identify instructional variables such as attending, that may contribute to performance deficits.
