This session will review first-year efforts to implement interventions for students with autism derived from the science of applied behavior analysis and incorporating an analysis of verbal behavior. The efforts undertaken in the Lee’s Summit School District in Missouri replicate many aspects of the model utilized through PATTAN’s Autism Initiative ABA Supports. The presenters will review critical elements of achieving effective instructional practices for students with autism. Outcomes will be discussed in terms of changes in students’ skill levels.
