Blending Behavior Analysis with Precision Measurement for Students with ASD:
A Public School Success Story
with Special Guest Dr. Andrew (Drew) Bulla, Armstrong State University
The current webinar details a collaborative project between a mid-western university and a local intermediate school district. As part of a multi-year project, the webinar will focus on data from the first year of implementation of the Morningside Model of Generative Instruction: Math Curriculum. An overview of the project’s implementation will be discussed including, but not limited to, teacher buy-in and training, homogeneous grouping, Direct Instruction, and Precision Teaching. Modifications made to support students with autism will also be discussed. Lastly, specific behavior management systems to promote active engagement and manage disruptive behaviors will be highlighted.
Webinar participants will learn:
- The relationship between poorly designed instruction and disruptive behaviors.
- How to select appropriate interventions to address the underlying issues.
- Tactics for identifying and using evidence-based curricula for mathematics intervention.
- Plans for implementing Direct Instruction and Precision Teaching methods for students with autism.
