A lot of skills, from locating a friend in the mall to matching identical objects, require scanning. Attempts to teach these skills without an emerging scanning repertoire can be fruitless and can contribute to learners becoming more difficult to teach over time. Teachers have long struggled to earn consistent scanning from their learners. Some teachers have run out of ideas and have attempted to physically prompt learners to scan. Most of us can see the flaws in that approach. Using a bottom-up approach, some teachers have explicitly prompted and reinforced scanning, in isolation of other skills. While this is a fair and logical approach, I will make the case in this webinar that more effective, more meaningful interventions exist.In this webinar, we will review: a variety of exercises and games that can earn functional scanning repertoires; provide examples of bottom-up instructional sequences; describe (in)effective instructional processes.*Note, “Scanning” pairs with “Reinforcer-seeking Games”, which will only be reviewed very briefly during the “Scanning” webinar.

Participants will be able to:

1. Sequence a variety of instructional activities requiring scanning from easiest-to-hardest.

2. Describe the potential role of functional consequences in the development of a scanning repertoire.
