A BEST SELLER! Includes 42 common areas students with autism struggle with in 3 domains in Preschool, Elementary, and Secondary levels.
Part 1: Four checklists target the areas of disturbances in communication, which impact social interaction; and disturbances in relating appropriately to people, events, or objects, which may be evidenced by restricted, repetitive, and nonfunctional behaviors, interests, and activities.
Part 2: Suggested IEP goals are provided for each domain.
The checklists can be used through the year to identify areas of concern for each student, and to determine priority areas to work on. Observe students across settings, collect data and record anecdotal situations to gain a baseline. Score each area for the student’s current level, and all levels below. For example, for Elementary students, also mark all areas in the Preschool level.
Analyze collected data to determine the most critical areas for a targeted behavior. There are numerous areas to work on with students, but give the most time and attention to the most crucial areas. These might be behaviors that would cause injury to self or others, foundational skills that other skills can be built on, or areas that most prevent the student from learning.
Use Evidence-Based Interventions for the areas that have been targeted for intervention. Throughout the year, different areas may rise as students progress through curriculum and situations at school. Revisit the checklist and determine what other areas need to be targeted to ensure continued development of the student.
