FK-2: The Basics of Precision Teaching for Instructing Learners with ASD

Precision Teaching (PT) is a set of procedures added to or enhancing your ongoing teaching.  In many ways it is the operationalization of high expectations and application of applied behavior analysis and scientific principles to instruction.  While it may be a challenge to do this with an entire class it is especially relevant when a student is at risk of a more being moved to a more restrictive setting, or when they need to be accelerated in an instructional area.  Parents can implement this format of instruction with the support of a BCBA and/or teacher who knows how to do PT.  This workshop will provide a brief and rapid-fire overview of PT with the goal of allowing the motivated participant to begin to implement PT with an individual student.  Resources for self-study and instructional materials are provided. 

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Participants will be able to state the four key elements of Precision Teaching
  2. Participants will be able to state how learner performance data is charted on a Standard Celeration Chart    
  3. Participants will be able to state evidence based decisions for instructional changes based on sample student learning pictures.
