Specific Praise - Autism/Moderate and Severe Disabilities

What is the "Specific Praise" instructional strategy?

With "Specific Praise", the teacher delivers specific feedback regarding observed student success, informing the student exactly what was done correctly and praising success.  Specific praise should be faded as student success maintains.  This helps the student to discriminate correct versus incorrect responses and understand how to continue with success.

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.
