To view Part 1: A Developmental Framework for Evidence-Based Practices for the Autism Spectrum: The Importance of Social and Emotional Development (Part 1 of 2)

Engagement is a term that is used frequently in our discussions of effective instructional practices in the classroom setting. This webinar will ensure that our definition of engagement matches the critical priorities of students with autism and related social learning differences. Engagement can be measured by the rate of student initiations, a student’s independence with targeted materials, and his or her emotional investment in classroom lessons. Each of these three “I’s” of engagement are essential for ensuring a student will engage in deep learning and meet academic content standards.

As a result of this activity, the participant will be able to identify:

1. Three elements of engagement that ensure a students’ access to the classroom curriculum.

2. Three instructional strategies for increasing engagement in students.
