Functional Routines are predictable events that involve a chain of behaviors. These routines provide meaningful contexts for using, generalizing, and maintaining receptive and expressive language, social interaction skills, and preacademic concepts. In this edWebinar, STAR Autism Support’s Cami Algaier, MS CCC-SLP, BCBA, discussed creative ways to teach functional routines to students with autism. Topics covered include acquiring 1:1 skills, small group, simulations, during the routine, visuals, and prompting/fading. This recorded session will benefit special education teachers, speech therapists, and paraprofessionals.
