Courses & Consultation

Consultation: Are you a budding precision teacher or parent looking to employ these techniques with your learners?  Need some direction and feedback to strengthen and sharpen your skills?  Need assessments and curricula to aid in your practice?  Check out our available packages to help you get started or enhance your precision teaching experience!

 

Courses: These courses are created for particular audiences.  Please attend to the labels of each course to see if it is suited for you.  For practitioners who are seeking courses to fulfill CEU requirements, additional "homework" will be required to receive your certificate.  Please attend to the homework specifics at the end of each course to ensure your certificate distribution.

You must create a free profile on www.versal.com to access these courses.  When you purchase a course, be sure to enter the same email address that is affiliated with your Versal account.  You can access the course two ways: a link in the digital download file or an email invitation from Versal to join the course.  However, your link will not be activated until you receive the email invitation. This may take a few hours. You have 1 month to complete the course after receiving the email invitation.  Please email us if you need an extension.

A common barrier to utilizing PT is creating a program that would be appropriate for a PT Timing.  Many BCBAs live in the world of DTT and are unaware of how to target the same behaviors in a free operant preparation.  This webclass will teach you how to convert traditional programs to become as "free" as possible while discussing some logistical considerations to programming and sequencing.

Add To Cart

Abstract:

A significant percentage of behavior analysts are trained in discrete trial training.  This type of training focuses on restricted operants where there is a single discriminative stimulus and consequence for each response.  However, our world is composed of more than restricted operants.  Rather, we live primarily in a world of free-operant behavior.  Unfortunately, many behavior analysts are not trained in shaping free-operant behavior.  As a result, they encounter a barrier when wanting to integrate Precision Teaching into their services.  Transitioning from restricted-operant training to free-operant training can be difficult.  Therefore, this webclass seeks to educate the attendees on free-operants and other considerations when designing academic curriculum.  This objective will be broken down into six units.  The first unit will focus on exemplars and non-exemplars of free-operant programs.  The second unit will detail the first step of Precision Teaching, pinpointing.  Logistical considerations will be addressed in the third unit, formatting.  Component and composite behaviors will be explained as well as a display of a curriculum map of our basic reading curriculum in the fourth unit.  The fifth unit will list some tips on how to plan one’s curriculum generation.  And finally, the sixth unit will address the importance of program descriptions and provide some samples as well as video clips of instructors utilizing such descriptions.  A bonus video montage closes out the webclass showing the range of free-operant (or mostly free) programs that are utilized at Precision Teaching Learning Center. 

 

 

Behavioral objectives include:

1) discriminate between restriected operants and free operants

2) create a pinpoint utilizing learning channels and movement cycles

3) sequence a client’s pinpoints according to component/composite skills

 

Attendance Procedure: active responding quizzes interjected throughout course – lack of participation or errorful responding will result in an incomplete course completion.

 

Course price: $100                                                Number of Type 2 CEUs: 2.5

 

Time: 2 hours of video/quiz completion, 0.5 hours of homework

 

Event Covers: Practice in Behavior Analysis, Education

 

Designed for: BCBAs, BCaBAs                        Level: Intermediate

 

 

Homework: Create a free-operant program and submit it for review.  You can create a stimulus sheet or a program description (if you require materials and scripts).  When your program is completed, email the pdf to precisiontlc@gmail.com titled "Curriculum CEU".  We will then issue you a CEU certificate in addition to comments regarding your program.
