Strategies for Teaching Based on Autism Research (STAR)


  • Approved Instructor


The STAR Autism Program can be used to teach children with autism the critical skills identified by the 2001 National Research Council. The ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) instructional methods of discrete trial training, pivotal response training and functional routines form the instructional base of this comprehensive program for children with autism.

The STAR Autism Program has been shown to be effectively implemented by public school early childhood and elementary level teachers, related service staff and instructional assistants in the recent literature (Arick, et. al. 2003). The STAR Autism Program has been used to provide intensive instruction in critical skills for children with autism in both self-contained programs and inclusive education programs. The program provides a structure that allows teachers to implement instruction throughout the child’s day through typical school routines and provides techniques to teach the child in short 1:1 instructional sessions. The skills the child learns in the 1:1 instruction can be immediately practiced in the natural environment through the functional routines lessons.
