This session will introduce attendees to procedures for guiding classroom teams in the implementation of research-validated instructional procedures for students with autism. Frequently special education classrooms have a team of professionals working together to provide daily instruction for students. Without careful attention to the procedures used for teaching, students can struggle, lose instructional time, and demonstrate problem behavior. The team will share procedures used to train a variety of classroom team members in the delivery of very technical teaching procedures used with students in the classroom. A sample system of training, data sheets, and training materials will be shared. The team will also share strategies targeted to increase motivation for professional development and procedural accuracy. A staff system of reinforcement will be shared, with examples.
