STAR Comprehensive Workshop

The STAR® 2-Day Workshop provides detailed examples and practice activities on how to implement the evidence-based practices identied in the National Standards Report (2009). The STAR® Program (Arick, Loos, Falco and Krug, 2004), a research-based curriculum is used to provide examples. Appropriate content connected to the common core curriculum is presented and detailed information on the three evidenced-based instructional methods of discrete trial training, pivotal response training and teaching through functional routines are shared. Participants will learn how to implement these strategies through structured lesson plans and a curriculum scope and sequence. The workshop will include extensive data collection systems and participants will learn to collect and use data for instructional decision making. Workshop topics will include the use of a power point lecture, video examples, presenter demonstration and participant “hands-on” practice.
