This session will review direct instruction history, basic research, available curricula, and prerequisite skills necessary prior to consideration for placement within programs. Specific use of placement assessments, signals across curricula, and the use of within-program assessments will be discussed. Classroom examples of single and small-group presentations will be used to demonstrate the implementation of specific programs with students diagnosed with autism within the classroom setting. Variables related to effective group instruction will also be reviewed.
