Winter GATTAP - January 28 – January 29, 2016

Winter GATTAP sessions will focus on use of data in comprehensive program planning for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.  Topics will include use of curriculum-based measures to develop IEP goals/objectives, determine appropriate accommodations/modifications, and inform placement options.  For each day participants must view ONE of the following Autism Internet Modules (www.autisminternetmodules.com) that best meets their needs, bring the related posttest as evidence, and be prepared to share key points with the group:

  • Computer-Aided Instruction
  • Home Base
  • Overview of Social Skills Functioning and Programming
  • Peer Mediated Instruction and Intervention (PMII)
  • Social Skills Groups
  • Structured Work Systems and Activity Organization
  • Supporting Successful Completion of Homework
  • Task Analysis
  • Time Delay
  • Transitioning Between Activities

** If attending both days of the Fall GATTAP sessions participants will be expected to view and bring post tests for TWO Autism Internet Modules.

Seat Hour Verification
Participants must bring the post-tests as their ticket into the sessions (2 seat hours each).  They must attend the session for 6 seat hours per session.  After attending the session participants must use one of the strategies that they learned in the meeting and send the facilitator a description of how the strategy was implemented in a classroom or with a student they serve (2 seat hours). Participants can therefore earn 10 seat hours for each day that they attend and fully participate in the GATTAP process – more if they choose to complete more than 2 modules.  Participants can receive 2 additional seat hour credits for each additional module over the 2 for which they (1) bring a post-test, (2) share key points with the group, and (3) provide evidence of how they use strategies in the classroom.
