This course prepares participants to teach fundamental literacy skills to students (children or adults) on the autism spectrum and to individuals at risk of school failure.
The Maloney Method combines five behavioral approaches first synthesized by Michael Maloney, and Eric and Elizabeth Haughton beginning 45 years ago in Belleville. Ontario, Canada.
The Maloney Method was created as a method of learning objectives, student management, direct Instruction, measurement and practice. It has been successfully implemented to teach more than 100,000 students at-risk of school failure over the past five decades. It as been used with a wide spectrum of students despite their condition, age, labels and deficits and is quickly and easily learned, especially for those with a behavioral background.
The course is offered synchronously online as a series of six course modules over a 12 week period. Each presentation is followed by a synchronous lab section (one hour minimum) with Michael Maloney. The course modules, taken together, constitute training in the six components of the Maloney Method instructional model for behavioral teaching. Courses are available as a complete series presented in a specific order so that the registrants and their charges receive all the components of the behavioral model in an easily applied order. Lessons, worksheets, hands-on projects and data-based case studies are included as part of the presentations and labs.
