Workshop #W17
CE Offered: PSY/BACB
Standard Celeration Charting
Friday, May 25, 2012
8:00 AM–3:00 PM
306 (Convention Center)
Area: EDC/TBA; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Kerri L. Milyko, Ph.D.
ABIGAIL B. CALKIN (Calkin Consulting Center), JOHN W. ESHLEMAN (The Chicago School of Professional Psychology), MICHAEL FABRIZIO (Families for Effective Autism Treatment of Washington), KERRI L. MILYKO (Precision Teaching Learning Center)
Description: This workshop will teach participants the steps of precision teaching with particular emphasis on reading and charting human performance on the Standard Celeration Chart (SCC). Participants will learn a) to write precise performance statements (pinpointing), b) the three important dimensions of behavior to monitor, c) the features of the SCC, d) standard charting conventions, and e) how to analyze performance on the chart to assist in making data-based decisions. The instructors will draw from long and varied histories of success using the SCC in a range of setting to illustrate key concepts taught in the workshop. The presenters will use examples from university teaching, educational intervention with special needs and regular education students, and the monitoring of private events. Participants will receive a copy of the Handbook of the Standard Celeration Chart, all materials used in the workshop, and a CD containing selected articles and an electronic version of the SCC.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, participants should be able to:

Write precise performance statements (pinpointing)

Read performance data charted on the SCC

Chart performance data charted on the SCC

Describe the frequency, celeration, and bounce of the data on the SCC

Describe changes in performance using SCC change terminology

Describe appropriate data-based change decisions

Activities: Applying principles derived from behavior analysis of well-designed instruction, our world-class group of workshop instructors will use a range of activities to ensure participants learn the skills targeted in the objectives. Participants will engage in choral responding and paced practice, timed practice on key concepts and skills, and both small and large group discussions.
Audience: This workshop is appropriate for anyone seeking an introduction (or refresher) to precision teaching and standard celeration charting, including persons interested in using the SCC to improve their teaching or clinical practice and individuals planning to take the BACB examination.
