Presented by STAR Autism
January 14, 2021, 2:45-4:00 p.m.
Due to the circumstances related to COVID-19, many educators are providing instruction to students in a variety of settings. Educators are faced with the challenge of providing seamless instruction to students with significant learning needs as some students receive in-person instruction and others receive remote learning instruction. This presentation provides a comprehensive approach to transitioning students from remote learning to in-person learning using data to drive instructional decisions. We will explore tools in the remote learning platform, the STAR Online Learning System (SOLS), and The STAR Program (Strategies for Teaching based on Autism Research), which is primarily used for in-person learning. Both tools are evidence-based, scaffolded curricula for preschool and elementary students with autism and other developmental disabilities. Strategies and tools to create seamless instruction regardless of settings will be explored. Participants will be provided with examples of assessments, data collection tools, progress monitoring systems, schedules, and classroom maps. Video examples of both remote learning sessions and in-person learning sessions will be shared. Free resources will be provided for teachers to use to explain new routines and social expectations related to COVID-19.
Register for Providing Seamless Service by January 12, 2021. Participants must register 48 hours in advance to guarantee needed accommodations.
