Practice - Autism/Moderate and Severe Disabilities

What is the "Practice" instructional strategy?

With "Practice", the teacher allows students opportunities to engage with the content through hands-on efforts based on teacher demonstrations.  Practice should be supervised by the teacher with consistent feedback faded out as success increases.  This helps the student to develop independent mastery and maintenance.

What are the "Autism/Moderate and Severe Disabilities" videos?

The Autism and MSD videos focus on the application of the entire range of Primary Level strategies to students with behaviors and needs typical of Autism Spectrum Disorders and/or Moderate and Severe Disabilities. The videos represent a cross section of student ages, group sizes, and instructional focus.

The following is a list of all of the Primary Level training videos  involving the "Practice" instructional strategy being used with Autism/Moderate and Severe Disabilities students that are available for viewing.
