1 Setting up an Integrated Life Skills Program Secondary Penny Williams BCBA, M.Ed.

2 Why is it so difficult to design for multiple student needs?

3 Who Are Your Students? Varying abilities and needsacademic behaviorindividual adaptive groups

4 General Considerations Staffing/Student Ratios Student assignment Student abilities

5 Critical Elements Environment Goals and Objectives Instructional Groupings

12 Materials: Areas Individual What do the materials allow you to do or not do? Are materials easily accessed by adults and students? Promote engagement? Small and Large Group What do the materials allow you to do or not do? Are materials easily accessed by adults and students? Promote engagement and interaction?

15 The basics still apply 15 Appropriate goals Planning for instruction Intervention strategies Using appropriate supports Monitoring progress

16 1 What are you going to teach? 2 How are you going to teach the skills and behaviors? 3 How will you know that your teaching has been effective? Three Important Questions

17 17 Olivia’s Objectives (social goals) Arrival Journal Time Initiate greetings and respond to greetings from peers. Group MeetingRespond on topic. Maintain conversations for at least 2 turns. ReadingParticipate with reading buddy (read out loud, take turns, answer questions). RecessInitiate greetings and respond to greetings from peers. Play social games with 2 or more peers. MathParticipate in group game with peers (take turns, answer questions).

21 Individual Work and Instruction Space is Important AttentionBuild Skills Behavior

22 Physical Structure organized so the student can understand where different activities take place and where materials are kept Consider: Size of room, specific areas for learning specific tasks, individualization Keep in mind: Establish clear visual and/or physical boundaries Minimize visual and auditory distractions Physical Structure

28 Independent Work Centers – Middle School Classroom

29 Independent Work System - Elementary

30 Physical Structure Leisure Work Individual Teaching Areas Clear boundaries (rugs, bookshelves, tape, etc.) Materials marked (pictures, numbers, color coded, etc. Layout Physical Structure

31

32

33 Is there space provided for individual and group work? Are work areas located in least distractible settings? Are work areas marked so that a student can find his own way? Are there consistent work areas for those students who need them? Are there places for students to put finished work? Are a student's materials easily accessible and clearly marked for him or her? Physical Structure

36 Individual Visual Schedule Gives students the sequence of activity May be an object, symbol, written word, or photograph Tells the student where he/she is suppose to be and what they are suppose to be doing Individual Schedule

37 Individual Visual Schedule “we don’t fade schedules from our students since they are a tool for life- long independence. Rather, we design schedules to grow with the child” TEACCH Individual Schedule

42 Written Work System: Making Lunch Materials for making lunch would be placed into color coded bins.

43 Individual Visual Schedule Is there a balance of individual, independent, group, and leisure activities incorporated daily? Is the schedule represented in a form that is easily comprehended by the student? Does the schedule help a student with transitions -- where to go and what to do? Individual Schedule

44 Individual Visual Schedule Does the schedule help a student know where and when to begin and end a task? How are transitions and changes in activity signaled? timer rings? teacher direction? student monitors clock? Do individual student schedules consider student needs for break times, reinforcement, nonpreferred activities followed by preferred activities? Individual Schedule

45 Data collection and progress monitoring

46 To stay in compliance To determine if it is necessary to change our instruction To demonstrate the child’s progress overtime To communicate the child’s progress to others Why should I collect data?

47 Collecting data should be linked to instruction When writing criteria on the objective the data collection method should always be the first thing to consider How do I know what data to collect?

48 You do not have to collect data on every occurrence of the target behavior, data simply must be representative of the target behavior Often enough to use it to guide your instruction How often should I collect data?

49 Summarize data (convert to percentage, total numbers) Make it visual (graph it) Make instructional decision based on information (continue, change instruction, etc.) What do I do with the data once I have collected it?

50 Program is working Task to difficult Can perform some but not all the task Compliance problem Mastered program Use data patterns to inform your decisions about what to do next How do I make decisions based on the graphs?

51 DATE 4/34/44/54/64/7 Goal: 10 Double digit add/ subtraction

52 How will I or my team manage all of the data sheets? Use one data form to collect information on many different target behaviors Ball++ apple++ book++ Shoes-- cup+- red-- blue+- Green++ yellow++ pink++
