PLS is a problem behavior prevention curriculum. It is intended for students who are at risk for the development of severe problem behavior. It is not intended for students who already exhibit severe problem behavior.

Education: Saturday, May 7, 2022 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM GMT-4

During the education portion of the workshop, Dr. Cammilleri will describe and provide video examples of the Preschool Life Skills (PLS) curriculum, which has been demonstrated to prevent the development of problem behavior of preschoolers with and without developmental disabilities, as well as elementary students with developmental disabilities. The allure and false promise of sole reliance on proactive strategies will be described, and an emphasis on prevention (not problem avoidance) will then lead to descriptions and video examples of class-wide, small-group, and 1:1 teaching formats. Within this response to intervention (RTI) model, participants will learn how to use the PLS curriculum to promote the fundamental social skills that have been shown to compete with the development or persistence of problem behavior.

Independent Application Practice: May 8-May 12

Attendees will be provided with a copy of the PLS curriculum. During the time between the education portion of the workshop and the design portion of the workshop, attendees will use the curriculum to make:

  1. Preliminary modifications to the student response requirements to accommodate students for whom speaking is not their primary mode of communication
  2. Preliminary modifications to FTF’s introductory lessons to suit their classrooms needs
  3. Preliminary designs of new introductory lessons for their classrooms
  4. Preliminary modifications to FTF’s proposed situations used to evoke PLS
  5. Preliminary designs of new situations that may be used to evoke PLS

Q&A Sessions: Friday, May 13 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM or 1:30:00 PM to 2:30 PM GMT-4 or Saturday, May 14, from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM

Dr. Cammilleri and Dr. Kevin Luczynski will provide two Q&A sessions—one for participants who sign-up for the morning design session, and one for participants who sign-up for the afternoon design session. These sessions are for participants who have already completed the education portion of the work workshop conducted by Dr. Cammilleri. Questions should focus on gaining further clarity on implementation of the curriculum, rather than on the unique challenges of a particular learner.

Virtual Design Sessions: Friday, May 13, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM or 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM GMT-4 or Saturday, May 14, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Dr. Cammilleri and Dr. Kevin Luczynski will provide two design sessions. During the guided application portion of the workshop, they will review samples of the modifications and designs attendees created during the independent application practice portion of the workshop, as well as make recommendations, and provide troubleshooting for challenges. This portion of the workshop relies on multiple exemplar training across participants. In other words, not all modifications and designs will be reviewed for each participant, but a sufficient number of modifications and designs will be reviewed across participants for each to competently continue to refine their individual plans.

Objectives: Attendees will be able to…

  1. Describe and implement the PLS questionnaire to assess whether students have a repertoire of skills that will help prevent the development of problem behavior.
  2. Describe and implement the PLS curriculum with authentic practice opportunities.
  3. Use the PLS manual to design new ways introduce and practice preschool life skills.
  4. Modify the PLS curriculum for students with language differences.
  5. Describe how proper implementation of the PLS curriculum makes it consistent with a Response to Intervention (RTI) model of teaching.
  6. Record student performance data.

Follow-up Consultation:     

Participants who complete the workshop will be eligible to purchase a package of fifteen 45-minute weekly follow-up consultations to support PLS implementation for up to 3 classrooms. Note, all staff members for a classroom must have completed the workshop to be eligible for the follow-up consultations.
