January 9: Strategies of Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) #5: Building Routines with and without Toys

Routines provide the framework within which we teach. We will identify strategies to build well-elaborated reciprocal routines with and without toys/objects.

Presenter:
Elizabeth McMahon Griffith, Ph.D.
Associate Professor; Developmental Pediatrics, Univ. of Colorado School of Medicine
Psychologist; Children's Hospital Colorado

January 23: Strategies of ESDM #6: Elaborated Reciprocal Routines

When routines are well structured, elaborated, and jointly constructed, learning occurs more readily. We will work to develop a clear structure and vary/elaborate daily routines, routines with toys, and sensory social routines.

Presenter:
Elizabeth McMahon Griffith, Ph.D.
Associate Professor; Developmental Pediatrics, Univ. of Colorado School of Medicine
Psychologist; Children’s Hospital Colorado

February 6: Strategies of ESDM #7: Teaching Inside of Routines Using 3-Term Contingency

Strategies from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) are used to provide effective teaching. We will look at the 3-Term Contingency and how to work this strategy to teach a variety of skills within relationships and routines. We will also discuss further how to know whether teaching strategies are working.

Presenter:
Elizabeth McMahon Griffith, Ph.D.
Associate Professor; Developmental Pediatrics, Univ. of Colorado School of Medicine
Psychologist; Children’s Hospital Colorado

February 20: Strategies of ESDM #8: Teaching While Addressing Unwanted Behaviors

Despite our best efforts to build skills that replace unwanted behaviors through all of the strategies already discussed, sometimes we need to utilize other teaching strategies. We will examine additional strategies to address behaviors that are getting in the way of learning and ways to take data on these.
