Increasing the efficiency of instruction is a common goal in educational settings for individuals with an autism spectrum disorder. The efficiency of instruction can be enhanced by decreasing the amount of time it takes to teach a skill or increasing the amount of information that is learned during instruction. Instructive feedback is one instructional strategy that can enhance learning with children and adults with an autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Kodak will review the literature on instructive feedback, discuss ways that instructive feedback has been incorporated into classroom and community settings, and describe behavioral repertoires that may impact the effects of instructive feedback on learning outcomes. Dr. Kodak will also provide clinical examples of how to use instructive feedback in schools settings as well as community or home settings.
