The Role of Assessment and Evaluation in the Education of Children with Autism

presented by Dr. Erik Mayville, PhD, BCBA-D, Clinical Director, Institute for Educational Planning

Dr. Mayville will be discussing features of the educational evaluation process and the role of an independent educational evaluation in the educational process for students with ASD.  Erik will focus on key aspects of behavior analytic programming and the means by which service improvement can follow from evaluation findings.  Dr. Mayville will highlight common points of breakdown in the educational process for students with ASD, the issues involved in preventing and repairing shortcomings in behavior analytic programming, and the evolving role of the behavior analyst in designing appropriate educational programs, particularly for middle and high school-aged students.
