Ault, Melinda Jones; Griffen, Ann Katherine
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v45 n3 p46-53 Jan-Feb 2013
Systematic instruction including frequent collection and graphing of data is essential for effective and efficient instruction of students with significant disabilities. The system of least prompts procedure is a systematic strategy often used to teach tasks to students; however, the traditional method for graphing the data collected using this procedure can be labor intensive and may not provide an adequate representation of student progress. This article presents an alternative method for graphing the system of least prompts data and provides guidelines for making instructional decisions based on the data. Examples of the system are provided. (Contains 4 figures and 1 table.)
