Hedges, S. – National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders, 2018
Technology-aided instruction and intervention (TAII) refers to instruction or intervention in which technology is the central feature supporting the acquisition of a goal for the learner. Technology is defined as "any electronic item, equipment, application, or virtual network that is used intentionally to increase/maintain, and/or improve…

Many learners with autism display inappropriate, maladaptive, and even aggressive behaviors towards others and themselves. Often, these behaviors stem from difficulties with communication, leading to unexpected and often undesirable methods to obtain certain wants, needs, and interests. Functional communication training addresses these interfering…

Naturalistic intervention (NI) originates from applied behavior analysis, which is the use of behavioral techniques to teach learners specific skills. Naturalistic intervention (NI) integrates the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) into the natural environment, or into a learner's everyday routines and activities so that the acquired…

Griffin, W. – National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders, 2017
A hallmark of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is difficulties with social communication, and some learners with ASD experience additional deficits in expressive and/or receptive language that impair their ability to interact with others. However, a strength observed in many learners with ASD is responding to visual cues and structure. The use of…

Exercise usually refers to the physical activity in which one engages in order to achieve a healthier level of physical fitness. The integration of daily opportunities for physical activity for learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is important for improving their basic physical fitness. In addition to physical fitness, exercise also can be…

Sam, A. – National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders, 2016
Derived from applied behavior analysis, antecedent-based interventions (ABI) are used to address both interfering behaviors (e.g. repetitive, disruptive) and on-task behaviors (e.g. engaged or working on specific task/activity) behaviors. ABI is commonly used with other evidence-based practices such as functional behavior assessment (FBA),…

Based on the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA), discrete trial training (DTT) is used to develop a new response to a stimulus. DTT is based upon the principle of breaking down behavior into discrete steps called a "single teaching unit" or learning trials. Trials are repeated several times with the learner receiving…

At times, all children and youth can struggle with challenging behavior. If a challenging behavior interferes with the learner's ability to learn, then a functional behavior assessment (FBA) is needed. FBA can be used when the intensity, duration, or type of interfering behavior creates safety concerns or impacts a child's development. An FBA…

Modeling (MD) can be used to increase a learner's ability to perform a target behavior. Modeling involves the learner observing someone correctly performing a target behavior. The demonstration of the behavior "before" the learner is expected to demonstrate the behavior serves as a primer for the behavior. In addition, modeling can be…

Several terms used to describe Peer-Mediated Instruction and Intervention (PMII) include: "Peer Modeling," "Peer Initiation Training," "Direct Training for Target Student and Peer," "Peer Networks," and "Peer Supports." Peer-mediated instruction and intervention (PMII) can address social concerns…

Similar to sign language and picture boards, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) system. AAC systems are used to help individuals who do not have typical verbal skills to communicate with others. PECS is a behavior based intervention that teaches the learner to use visual-graphic…

Suhrheinrich, J.; Chan, J.; Melgarejo, M.; Reith, S.; Stahmer, A. – National Professional Development Center on Autism Spectrum Disorders, 2016
Pivotal response training (PRT) is an intervention that integrates principles of child development with those of applied behavior analysis (ABA). This means that facilitating a PRT interaction involves a simultaneous consideration of the learner with Autism Spectrum Disorder's (ASD's) developmental levels and progression, along with the…

Prompting (PP) includes any help given to a learner that assists the learner in using a specific skill or behavior. Sometimes referred to as an "errorless learning method," prompting reduces incorrect responding as learners acquire new skills. Prompting is a foundational practice that is used with other evidence-based practices (such as,…

Reinforcement (R+) is used to teach target skills and increase desired behaviors. Other evidence-based practices (for example, prompting, pivotal responses training) draw upon components of reinforcement. Reinforcement describes the relationship between learner behavior and a consequence that follows the behavior. The relationship between the…
