K-2: All students can learn… If we teach effectively: Using evidence-based educational programming to ensure no child is truly left behind

Nearly two thirds of fourth to eighth graders cannot read proficiently. When we further break down those data, we see that almost 90% of neurodiverse students, including autistic students, are below proficiency in reading, math, and science. Educational technologies derived from behavior analysis and instructional design have demonstrated success in helping those students bridge the gap and successfully catch up. The current presentation will take participants back in time to look at decades of research, that many have overlooked, on powerful educational technologies to help all students learn and grow to be lifelong learners.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. State which model outperformed all other models in Project Follow Through
  2. Describe Direct Instruction and give an example and non-example of explicit instruction
  3. State the steps of precision teaching and the outcomes from the Great Falls Demonstration
