Precision Teaching a Foundational Motor Skill to a Child with Autism
Fabrizio, Michael A.; Schirmer, Kristin; King, Amy; Diakite, Ami; Stovel, Leah
Journal of Precision Teaching and Celeration, v23 p16-18 2007
Since the early work of Anne Desjardin (1980) and others, Precision Teachers have developed Big 6+6 skills in their students' repertoires when needed. In this article, the authors present the Standard Celeration Chart (SCC) which documents how they analyzed the Big 6+6 skill of "squeeze" in terms of arranging sequences of instruction. The SCC shows the progress of a student named Joshua as he learned to squeeze various objects. This work extends the previous work of Precision Teachers in the area of Big 6+6 intervention in that it provides: (a) a description and charted example of how the authors analyzed and arranged the sequence of instruction for this child; (b) an empirical analysis of the relationship between charted performance and the separate outcomes of fluency; skill retention, endurance, stability, and application; and (c) a demonstration of one of the ways the authors use celeration as a basis for data-based decision making.
