Training Teachers to Implement Data Based Decisions for Students with Significant Disabilities
Research shows use of data based decisions for students with severe disabilities is highly beneficial, yet few teachers implement them in the classroom. This session will present the results of a study on the effects of DBD training on teacher/student outcomes. Also, participants will learn about the five most common DBDs. Learner outcomes: Provide participants with procedures and outcomes from a study conducted on training teachers of students with significant disabilities and autism from diverse backgrounds to make informed data-based decisions; and Participants will be provided a handout with a data based decision-making guide as well access to the online modules used in the study.
