STRIVE for Success Autism Training Series

S: Structuring the Environment (Full Day)

Even with exemplary instruction, interventions, and curriculum supports, students with autism learn best when the classroom environment is systematically prepared with their needs in mind. This interactive workshop will provide participants with essential strategies that help structure optimal learning environments to support not only the needs of learners with autism, but also the learning needs and engagement of all students. Creative ideas for setting up the environment to foster success, using visual supports to promote independence, and developing routines to build predictability will provide both experienced and novice educators with practical solutions they can implement in their classrooms.

T: Teaching Replacement Behaviors (AM)

In this session, you will explore four different functions of behavior and will learn how to create a function- based intervention plan, including choosing the appropriate replacement behavior skills to teach. You will learn the importance of teaching replacement behaviors and what we need to know to be effective when teaching replacement behaviors. Specific steps in teaching replacement behaviors will be explored and practiced.

R: Reinforcing Positive Outcomes (PM)

During this session, you will learn about basics of reinforcement, key strategies, and planning and using reinforcement systems successfully. You will have opportunities to develop and brainstorm individualized reinforcement systems to meet the needs of your students in a variety of contexts.

I: Increasing Communication (AM)

Individuals with autism often have difficulty with communication – including comprehension, expression, and pragmatics. Research shows that individuals with autism often benefit from the use of visual supports. This training will provide practical strategies for school teams to foster communication growth through the use of language-rich, visually-based classroom and communication systems and supports.

V: Visual Supports (PM)

Providing assistance across activities and settings, the evidence-based practice of using visual supports in the classroom is used to organize learning environments and establish learning expectations around activities, routines, and behaviors, as well as cueing for transition time to instruction. You will learn how to effectively address behavior, readiness, and adaptive and academic outcomes through the use of regular and digital visual supports.

E: EBPs In Action (Full Day)

With an emphasis on proven strategies to support student learning, this session will integrate principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) while demonstrating evidence-based practices (EBP) in using visual supports and technology-aided instruction and intervention in activities across the curriculum. Applying the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), in conjunction with developing visually-supported materials affords students with autism direct access to interactive curricular experiences. UDL, a framework for designing flexible instructional environments, reduces barriers to learning in the curriculum and increases cognitive access to instruction with the goal of developing expert learners. The three main principles of UDL are to provide multiple means of (a) representation, (b) action and expression, and (c) engagement This session will provide participants with the opportunity to develop both print-based and interactive activities addressing a wide range of ability levels and student needs. Creative integration of mini-schedules, routines, and adaptive materials allows students with autism to achieve greater academic outcomes and build independence across a variety of settings. Each participant will “Make and Take” structured activities from each of the following subject areas: Math, Reading/Literacy, Science/Social Studies, Vocational/Life Skills. Activity skill levels range from emerging academic/functional skills through grade level activities. Join us for this exciting practical conclusion to our 19-20 STRIVE series!
