Hosted by: UF Gainesville CARD

Presenters for this series will include several education professionals such as consultants, early intervention providers, exceptional student education (ESE) directors, school administrators, and teachers who have all successfully included students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in general education. The first session in the series begins with an overview of what inclusion is and why it is important. Other sessions address early intervention leading into preschool and an administrative team’s experience creating the culture of inclusion within their small school district. The final session culminates with a team of educators and an administrator who created a model for inclusion in elementary school. All sessions are delivered online via Adobe Connect and contain a mixture of presentation and discussion. Individuals who participate in at LEAST TWO of the sessions receive a book by Paula Kluth full of practical strategies for inclusion.

Teach Your Student Well

Tuesday, April 26, 2016 from 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Presented by: Steve Ward, BCBA
Hosted by: FSU CARD 

This workshop focuses on ways to establish and maintain learner motivation throughout teaching that is applicable to all ages with an emphasis on school age (3-18) children. When these methods are employed, learners become easy to teach, skill acquisition becomes meaningful, and educators are able to teach to the whole child. The presenter will focus on practical methods that can be incorporated into a variety of settings, but will also provide analytical tools to improve the problem solving repertoires of participants.   Training Objectives Participants will: Learn to gauge learner motivation on a moment-by-moment basis. Brainstorm ways to expand upon limited play interests. List critical repertoires that should accompany the development of mandatory repertoires. Identify momentum-builders and momentum-drainers for familiar students. Explain methods to remediate common barriers to effective instruction.
