Presented By Dr. Brenda Smith Myles, Associate Professor, Resident Scholar for Ohio Center for Autism & Low Incidence (OCALI)***How do we teach our children and young adults to take the hidden curriculum and related skills to self-discover information — this is known as critical mass. Critical mass can be thought of as spontaneous, uber generalization that happens when purposeful practice occurs. This session will explore some of the basic tenets that will allow the critical mass to occur for children and youth with ASD. ***At the end of the session, attendees will be able to: 1. Define critical mass. 2. Describe purposeful practice and how it leads to critical mass. 3. Discuss how to apply the elements of purposeful practice to teaching children and young adults with ASD.
