Introduce Structured Teaching #414


Are you working with a child who does not play with toys, participate in therapy activities, and who has a very short attention span? Today I want to introduce you to a treatment method I’ve found to successfully improve attention, participation, and task completion for many kids who are on the autism spectrum or with characteristics of ASD. Using structured teaching activities, we can teach a young child to play with familiar toys increasing his opportunities to learn language and interact with peers. Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP of for this one-hour audio/video podcast episode in The Autism Podcast Series as she explains how structured teaching can help young children with autism “learn how to learn.”

In this course, participants learned how to develop and implement structured teaching activities to young children with autism to improve attention, participation, and task completion.

Learning Objectives:
Explain structured teaching to parents.
Discuss why play skills are important for young children.
Design 3 structured teaching activities.
Demonstrate deconstruction with 3 familiar toys.
