The presenter will define instructional pacing, including key elements such as wait-time and inter-trial-interval; summarize research on instructional pacing for students with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities; and outline recommendations for practitioners drawn from pacing research, including ways to implement brisk instructional pacing to increase learning and prevent challenging behavior.
