[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]


Instructors often become preoccupied with academic content and job performance when evaluating educational programming and fail to consider the role that engagement and having “fun” can play in all learning interactions. However, in studies involving typically developing students, increased active engagement in the classroom environment has been shown to correlate with greater academic achievement. Although active engagement has been identified as a key component in effective programming for students with autism spectrum disorder, many individuals with autism display limited active engagement in classroom activities. This presentation will focus on the importance of increasing the engagement of individuals with autism in learning tasks, and discuss practical teaching methods to incorporate throughout the lifespan. Participants can expect to learn about incorporating additional targets, choice-making, indices of happiness, and naturalistic teaching opportunities into instructional time. Application of these strategies to various educational contexts (e.g., classroom, prevocational training, job sites) will be discussed.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to describe the importance of making teaching interactions engaging for learners with autism.  
  2. Participants will be able to describe teaching techniques to increase engagement in educational activities across age ranges.
  3.  Participants will be able to identify how indices of happiness can be used to evaluate teaching procedures.
