Customize Your Curriculum: A Workshop with Dr. Kerri Milyko
February 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
What if you had the power and knowledge to scale curriculum to fit the needs of each learner? Imagine the academic and emotional growth that could be produced when the learner works on scalable curricula and is allowed to progress at his/her own pace. While this need is recognized by the educational and therapeutic communities at large, the wide-scale application is often lacking to the degree that it is effective. Teachers, homeschool families, and skills-based therapists (e.g., SLPs, BCBAs, OTs) are often trained on specific assessments, curricula, or subject areas instead of the analyses that can be extended to any skill set.
This 8-hour workshop will focus on general understanding of component/composite behaviors, how their analysis can be applied to a wide array of skills and learners, and scalable ways to track individual and group performance to ensure progress.Attendees will walk away with tools, resources, and the beginnings of self-created curriculum.
Dr. Milyko is a dynamic speaker, who brings a down-to-earth style to a complex subject, making her a sought-after presenter in education, behavior analysis, and Precision Teaching. Dr. Milyko owns two learning centers in Florida and is currently leading a community education mission in Nevada, bringing learning science to parents and educators. Continuing education units available!
Lunch will be catered on site for attendees.
Dr. Milyko and Dr. Carter would like to thank the fine folks at SARRC for allowing us to hold this event at their facility!
