STAR Program: Strategies for Teaching Based on Autism Research ? Level I, Complete Kit
Use this comprehensive, research-based program to teach children with autism the critical skills identified by the 2001 National Research Council. The STAR program includes detailed lesson plans, teaching materials, documentation, and ongoing assessment. Students with autism and other developmental disabilities systematically master receptive language, expressive language, spontaneous language, functional routines, pre-academic and academic skills, social interaction, and play skills.
Select this level if your student has difficulty following simple commands, has no or very little language, has behavior issues when asked to do a simple task, and may not interact with other children. With Level I, teach students to: understand basic language concepts.
* start to use verbal language to request desires.
* follow simple routines such as arrival to an activity area, departure from an activity area, circle time, or snack time.
* begin to participate in independent constructive play.
