Intro to ABLLS-R & WebABLLS

The Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (The ABLLS-R®) and WebABLLS® Introductory Workshop

The ABLLS-R®/ WebABLLS® introductory workshop will provide participants with the tools to analyze and track learner skills and develop a comprehensive language-based curriculum for children. The Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills (The ABLLS-R) and WebABLLS, provide an assessment tool, curriculum guide, and skills-tracking system that will help guide the instruction of language and critical learner skills for children with autism or other developmental disabilities.

This powerful tool is now available both in book form and through the electronic version, the WebABLLS, to parents, teachers, speech pathologists, behavior analysts, and others who design, coordinate, and/or supervise language or skill-acquisition programs.

With the ABLLS-R and/or WebABLLS, you can precisely assess a child’s language and learning skills, as well as identify when, where, and how the skills are being used. Participants will learn how to develop IEP goals and objectives that clearly define and target the learning needs of a student. These tools allow you to pinpoint obstacles that have been preventing a child from acquiring new skills and begin to develop a comprehensive language-based curriculum.

Essential information on scoring and interpreting the ABLLS-R will be shared through our discussions with examples that will show you how to:

  • Perform skills analyses to determine a child’s strengths and deficits.
  • Continually measure and monitor learning achievements using specially designed skill tracking grids.
  • Utilize assessment results for evaluating priorities, determining IEP objectives, and developing curricula.

This introductory-level workshop is primarily geared for professionals and parents who have not had extensive experience in using the ABLLS-R.
