Participants will be able to demonstrate the use of several error correction procedures within discrete trial training. 3. Participants will be able to summarize the current empirical evidence surrounding error correction procedures. 4. Participants will be able to describe various methods to match error correction strategies to individual learners. 5. Participants will learn to use data sheets to track the results of error correction procedures.
Activities: The workshop will include lectures, role-playing, video modeling, and discussion.
