Audience: Any educator or school staff member working with students with autism, parents and administrators.

Dates: 6/22/2020

Academically Able (formerly referred to as "high functioning") students with Autism Spectrum Disorders are often misunderstood and overlooked.

The Academically Able workshop is intended to meet the needs of both special and regular educators who serve these students. Social competency, academic accommodations, and transition issues are covered. These students are sometimes described as having mild ASD, but their challenges and their implication for future success are anything but mild. It is important to address the needs of these students in order to assist them in meeting their full potential.

    Join us in learning how to break down behaviors into teachable steps to help students obtain new skills using Discrete Trial Training (DTT). Discrete Trial Training is based on the principle of breaking down behavior into separate (discrete) steps that have a clear beginning, middle, and end. DTT consists of adult-directed massed trial instruction along with reinforcers and clear contingencies and repetition to teach a new skill or behavior. DTT is an evidence based practice most appropriate for students of age 3-11 years.

    This workshop will:

    *Identify skills and ages where DTT is appropriate.

    *Identify steps to implement DTT in the classroom.

    *Data collection techniques to monitor progress and guide instruction.

    Audience: Building administrator & at least 2 additional staff members w/expertise and/or interest in specialized behavior support

    Dates: 6/24/2020 to 2/25/2021

    Missouri SW-PBS will host a series of 6 sessions for schools that have completed Tier 1 training and are ready to transition to developing Tier 1 interventions for SW-PBS framework. During these sessions, teams receive an overview of Tier 2 purposes, research, and intervention examples. They assess fidelity of Tier 1 implementation and determine their school's readiness for developing a Tier 2 system. As an initial outcome, the Tier 2 team develops a systematic process for identifying students at-risk of developing problem behaviors, which includes use of data decision rules and a teacher nomination process. Teams establish procedures to determine the function of behavior in order to match student difficulties with appropriate interventions. The use of universal screening instruments is considered.

    To learn the Tier 2 process, teams work toward implementation of Check-In, Check-Out (CICO), and Social Skills Intervention Groups (SSIG) both of which are research-based interventions. Clear entry and exit criteria are established for the two interventions, and data to be collected for progress monitoring is identified. Teams provide professional development to ensure all school staff understand the interventions and their role in implementing the interventions including promoting generalization of skills across multiple settings. Families receive information about the purpose of the intervention and their role in supporting their child's participation. By the end of Tier 2 training, teams create data rules for making decisions about individual student progress monitoring data and develop plans to fully implement the intervention the following year.

    Lunch will be provided.

    Wait List

    If you knew there was an evidence based practice that easy to implement, could increase communication and socialization, and reduce disruptive behaviors would you want to learn how to use it? Of course you would! You are going to want to check out Pivotal Response Treatment. Pivotal Response Treatment is an evidence based practice that has been shown to help children learn faster and has helped interventionists to move away from needing to teach children each individual behavior. In the late 70s and early 80s Dr. Robert Koegel and Dr. Lynn Kern Koegel learned that there are certain pivotal behaviors that, when taught, can result in improvements in many other behaviors that are among the symptoms of autism. One of the best things about PRT is that it is easy to implement.

    In this workshop:

    *Participants will learn basic strategies for teaching motivation

    *Participants will learn basic strategies for teaching self-initiation and question asking.

    *Participants will learn basic strategies to reduce disruptive behaviors.

    *Participants will learn basic strategies for data collection in PRT.

    Why not use those supports that occur within our everyday environments? Routine activities and opportunities occur all the time and be harnessed by us to provide learning opportunities for students with autism. Learn how to assist learners' peers to support their classmates with autism. Research has demonstrated peer support to be an effective and valuable resource. Additionally, identification of naturally occurring reinforcers decreases the need for use of contrived reinforcers and, because the reinforcement occurs within the everyday environment, is more likely to support generalization of skills.

    Learning outcomes include:

    Participants will describe five types of peer-mediated instruction.

    Participants will identify naturally occurring scenarios supporting social interaction.

    Participants will identify naturally occurring reinforcers.

    Participants will identify and discuss naturally occurring learning opportunities within their own settings.

    Dates: 7/1/2020

    If you were told about a strategy you could utilize at the beginning of the school year before students ever came to your classroom, and that would positively impact all students, would you use it? Learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder often struggle with information presented verbally, such as verbal directions for class activities, transitioning between activities and places, or knowing what's expected for specific tasks. However, individuals with ASD have strengths in processing visual detail and visual search skills when compared to individuals who are typically developing. Research shows by visually presenting information, the learner with ASD might be able to process information more effectively and efficiently. Goals that can be addressed by utilizing visual supports include, but are not limited to: decreased time and behavior between transitions, increased independence, increased task completion, increased student understanding of expectations, decreased staff prompts/reinforcement, and increased social interactions. Come learn about the power of visual supports and leave with a Make and Take to use in your classroom!

    During this workshop:

    *Participants will identify the three categories of visual supports.

    *Participants will learn how utilizing visual supports effectively benefits everyone.

    *Participants will learn appropriate data collection procedures to monitor visual support effectiveness .

    81% of adults with autism, intellectual and/or developmental differences in the U.S. do not have a paid job in the community (National Core Indicators). Around one-third of young people with autism now attend college. And only about 17 % of young adults on the spectrum, ages 21 to 25, have ever lived independently. What are some common threads among these statistics, and how do we address them? This workshop will look at evidenced-based practices for the skills necessary to increase success in the areas of employment, post-secondary education/training, and independent living. Let's talk about bridging the gap and moving students effectively from Form C to the real world.

    In this workshop:

    *Participants will identify the three main areas of Form C: Post-Secondary Transition Plan on an Individualized Education Program..

    Technology is everywhere in our schools now, but knowing how to develop its use for our learners with autism can be a challenge.

    Brain science and research has direct applications to classroom teaching and learning. We ignore the research at the peril of our own success as well as at the success of our students. Teaching with methods that don't respect brain science is like swimming against the current: teaching is more exhausting, students learn less, and students like class and content less. When we align our teaching with how the brain best learns, we are going with the current. Students learn more, enjoy class more, and teaching is more effortless and enjoyable for us. In this workshop, learn six core principles of brain-friendly teaching. For each principle, you will come away with Kagan Structures, tools, tips, and techniques to make your teaching more brain compatible and more scientifically sound.

    If there are 3 teachers from a district attending, the principal from that district may attend free.


    Lunch is on your own; optional one hour graduate credit available.
