One of the most common misconceptions in the field of applied behavior analysis is that discrete trial instruction fails to support the generalization of skills to real life applications. This session will teach participants how to take an active role in planning for and monitoring the generalization of skills instead of relying on more passive methods. The presentation will provide participants with recommendations for programming, target selection, lesson plan development, and goal setting. Throughout the presentation, examples and practical resources from classrooms across the state of Pennsylvania will be shared. Suggestions for preventing and addressing barriers to implementation as well as ethical considerations will also be discussed.
