1. Evidence-Based Interventions
Task Analysis and Reinforcement will be introduced, including the research base for each intervention. Participants will learn how these familiar interventions, which are likely already being utilized in their practice, can be strengthened through use of systematic implementation and data-driven decision-making to be much more effective than their current practice. Procedures will be presented for use of systematic implementation and data-driven decision-making.
2. Developing a Treatment Protocol
During this chapter, participants will walk through the steps of developing a treatment protocol, including performing a task analysis of putting on a jacket and considering how this skill will be taught (using Chaining) and how it will be measured. Participants will observe a student putting on a jacket to assess the student’s performance and create the treatment protocol.
3. Monitoring Progress
During this chapter, participants will be introduced to a self-graphing data collection sheet. Multiple examples of the participant putting on a jacket will be demonstrated, with opportunities for participants to collect data in real time. Five opportunities to collect data will be presented: baseline/observation and four treatment sessions.
