St. Mary’s County, Leonardtown: ‘What is the Ziggurat Model of Planning for Students with Disabilities?’

January 21, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

The Ziggurat Model is based on the premise that one must first understand why individuals are engaging in specific behaviors and identify what is reinforcing for them before attempting to teach them new skills and utilizes a student’s strengths to address underlying deficits. The Ziggurat approach provides a process and framework for designing individualized, comprehensive intervention plans for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities


Marcy Hough, SMCPS Supervisor of Special Education, with Instructional Resource Teachers for Autism, Lisa Dean and Joe Schlereth, will explain the Ziggurat approach and how it can be used to plan for students with ASD and other students with developmental disabilities.


This workshop for parents is free, but registration is required.
