One educational method that is highly effective and supported by published evidence is fluency training. Fluency training is implemented for skills that a child can demonstrate but not at a speed that is efficient. It serves to build the rate at which particular skills are emitted. Many educators are familiar with fluency for academic skills such as words read correctly per minute. This session will discuss atomic repertoires and the component/composite analysis for operants using fluency training. Rate data is a valid measurement and fluency instruction is an effective teaching tool, however, an analysis of when to use such tools is important for maximizing effective instructional time. Skills taught to fluency aims serve to build retention, endurance, stability and promote generalization for more complex language. Credits: Act 48, SW, Psych, PT, OT, BACB, INFANT, ASHA
