Functional Routines/Discrete Trial Training Workshop

This workshop is designed for secondary staff (Upper Elementary, Middle, High School and Post-Secondary) intending to implement evidence-based strategies through the use of the Links Curriculum or the FACTER Curriculum with students who have autism and other developmental disabilities.

This training will focus on assessing, individualizing and teaching functional routines.  A process for individualizing routines, identification of skills to teach and how to teach routines will be presented.  An additional focus will be on teaching specific skills through the use of Discrete Trial Teaching.  Participants will learn how to use Discrete Trial to pre-teach these skills needed for functional routines.  Video examples and video practice activities will be incorporated into the workshop.  An on-line computerized system will be demonstrated with hands-on practice by the participants.

Participating teams will receive workshop handhouts and needed materials/subscriptions to access the Links Curriculum and/or FACTER Program.

If possible, please bring a laptop computer or iPad to access Links (not required).

*Limited to 40 participants.

**There are limited funds available to provide release time to staff to be involved in ORPATS training.  This funding must be approved ahead of time and is available on a "first come first served" basis.  Website to download forms and instructions for submitting:  www.orpats.org
