The DT Trainer was created for independent use by students with varying levels of autism, however this unique tool is used with up to 33% of students in special education. This program, your virtual independent tutor, includes hundreds of content programs and reinforcers addressing the developmental age range of 2 to 9 years old. This training program motivates individuals to perform tasks which they may find difficult to learn. The DT Trainer has a proven track record for improving function for individuals that are easily distracted, lacking self-direction/motivation, has difficulty following directions, and requires some type of repetition. During this webinar, Karl Smith, Founder of Accelerations Educational Software will share information on how the DT Trainer can be implemented in the classroom and how the results have benefited students not only in school, but in preparation for employment opportunities and working with job coaches. This session will address who can benefit from the program best, how this program works, how to engage students during the setup process, and tips and resources for managing the program.
