For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

The National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice released the 2020 evidence-based practice report identifying 28 evidence-based practices (EBPs) for autism. Prompting is one of the 28 EBPs identified. This training will discuss what prompting is, when it is used, how to prompt effectively, and why we prompt. Examples of the different types of prompts will be given as well as demonstrated. Participants will see how prompting can support student success in various domains. Participants will independently view an online module then participate in a scheduled 3-hour session connecting information from the module to practices in the classroom, in the community, or in the home. By the end of the training participants will be able to identify as least 4 types of prompts, name various activities where prompting can be used, identify what type of prompt(s) will be best to use with at least one individual with autism in at least one activity.

Intended Audience
