The Links Curriculum was implemented by a group of teachers from several areas across the U.S. The teachers used the Links online system to assess their students and generate individualized routines. The teachers then used the Links lesson plans to begin instruction with each student on targeted skills needed to learn specific routine steps. Following instruction, the teachers assessed the student in the natural environment to determine if the student had generalized the skills learned.
Below are some comments from our pilot participants:
- “This is an incredible curriculum and online system! It clarifies and simplifies the process of teaching functional routines! It provides structure, data management, prompt guidance and instructional support. Links has already impacted the way I perceive teaching and assessing routines!”
- “It gives teachers incredible structure.”
- “Links provides teachers with ideas and support for how to best assess and collect data on behavior within the context of routines.”
- “The process reflects the natural educational cycle of selection, assessment, instruction, assessment and evaluation of results.”
More specific results from the pilot study will be available soon!
