When we work with autistic individuals, we often identify new skills that need to be taught to improve the person’s quality of life and reduce behaviours of concern. The process of teaching involves developing goals, designing lessons, and measuring learning outcomes.
This workshop will cover the writing of goals, the two principle types of lessons, lesson design, and the collection and analysis of data to measure progress.
- Identifying skills to teach
- Writing SMART goals
- Discrete versus sequential lessons
- Task analysis
- Types of prompts
- Fading prompts
- Correcting errors
- Recording responses
- Analyzing & interpreting data
- Goal modification

On completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Describe how to identify individual goals
- List the components of SMART goals
- Generate SMART goals
- Define discrete lessons versus sequential lessons
- Describe how to write a task analysis
- Define “prompt” and list the different types
- Describe how to fade prompts
