ABA in the Classroom: Getting Children with ASD to Follow Instructions


This workshop will guide educators on how to use Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) strategies to teach children with Autism and other Developmental Disabilities to follow instructions in a classroom. The workshop will include important components of compliance training and the power of reinforcement. Strategies will be classroom friendly.

Course Description

Following instructions is one of the most important skills required for a child to get through school. It is required for successful learning of other academic, language, and social skills. Many children with ASD have higher rates of not following instructions than typically developing children and as a result, struggle to learn other more advanced skills. The purpose of this workshop will be to discuss procedures to increase compliance with instructions in the classroom. Strategies presented utilize the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) including how to break down skills into teachable steps, how to give instructions, how to prompt, and how to reinforce. Attendees will understand the ABC's of a teaching sequence and how to apply this to everyday situations and instructions.


Participants will:

  • Learn how about the four types of non-compliance
  • Learn how to break down complex classroom tasks and routines
  • Learn how to implement compliance drills in the classroom
  • Learn about pairing and be given some strategies to develop a well paired relationship with their learner
  • Be given 100 Ways to Deliver Social Praise
