Can you remember all of the supports that your student with ASD needs throughout the day? If not, this can help!
This system allows educators to understand how to implement an instructional program for students with ASD that ensures that all needed interventions and supports are integrated into the child's day. Known as CAPS, the model answers common questions about finding the right supports to fit a child's learning style in order to help him reach his full potential. Used alone or with The Ziggurat Model, CAPS enables educators and other professionals to address adequate yearly progress (AYP), response to intervention (RTI), and positive behavior support (PBS) designed to help those with ASD.
This expanded second edition of The Comprehensive Autism Planning System (CAPS) for Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorders and Related Disabilities: Integrating Evidence-Based Practices Throughout the Student's Day - Second Edition (Non-Textbook Version) adds important new material on technical assistance/consultation, as well as up-to-date considerations of current mandates and trends that support CAPS use, including a major focus on evidence-based practices for ASD.
