Establishing Basic Skill Sets for Students with Autism or Other Complex Needs: The focus of this training is for students with autism or other complex needs who present limited or absent communication skills including tact (labeling) and mand (requesting repertoires). This training will cover conceptual skills, protocols, and methods to teach early social interactions that are necessary to establish basic skillsets for such students. Additionally, assessment and instructional practices related to the use of an object sort process for providing intensive teaching and data collection procedures will be directly taught. Training will also focus on teaching students to Mand/make requests. Mand is the process by which we teach functional communication in order to get the things they want/need, and, is a critical component of programming for these students. Mands can be taught through sign, vocal speech, and the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication. This training will cover the teaching procedures used in formal mand training as well as appropriate data systems. This training addresses the Kansans Can state goals in the area of social-emotional growth and Kindergarten readiness by building earliest communication skill repertoires.
