Workshop #W62
CE Offered: None
Incorporating Discrete Trial Teaching and Natural Language Paradigm Teaching within Early Intervention Sessions for Children with Autism
Saturday, May 29, 2004
8:00 AM–11:00 AM
Liberty B
Area: PRA; Domain: Applied Research
CE Instructor: Paul Coyne Coyne, Psy.D.
PAUL COYNE COYNE (Coyne and Associates, Inc.), ERIN RING (Coyne and Associates, Inc.), MELISSA L. EVANS (Coyne and Associates, Inc.)
Description: Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) and Natural Language Paradigm (NLP) are evidence-based teaching techniques commonly used in early intervention for children with autism and other developmental delays. However, it is less common to find early intervention programs with curriculums that incorporate and intersperse DTT and NLP techniques (e.g., Pivotal Response Teaching) into teaching sessions. The workshop will offer methods designed to integrate DTT and NLP techniques within an early intervention program for children with autism. We will present the essential features of both techniques, and offer practical real-life suggestions. A video displaying examples of actual teaching sessions will be presented.
Learning Objectives: At the completion of the workshop, participants will be able to: Describe the essential features of DTT and NLP (e.g., Pivotal Response Teaching). Converse about how DTT and NLP teaching techniques are similar and different. Model and role play NLP techniques related to attention, appropriate play, and language. Describe how to use NLP techniques within a DTT session. Model and role play using NLP techniques within a DTT session. Describe a method for data collection during DTT and NLP teaching sessions.
Activities: Participants will participate in an interactive lecture describing the essential features of DTT and NLP teaching techniques and how to incorporate the two into teaching sessions. This will include questions and answers. A video will be shown that provides descriptions of teaching techniques and examples from teaching sessions. Participants will break into small groups to role play and practice the techniques while receiving feedback and guidance from the instructors.
Audience: Practitioners, parents, students, and anyone who works in early intervention programs for children with autism and other developmental delays.
