re you an educator who has been struggling with providing training to your paraprofessionals, assistants, parents, or other support staff? Let me help!


As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) I have been trained to train people! Using the evidence based model called Behavior Skills Training (BST) I have created training programs to help educators train others in their classroom.


Using this method, I am going to help you, help your staff effectively run small groups of young learners with this Intro to Skills Training: Writing & Spelling Bundle.


This bundle has 3 different Behavior Skills Training Programs to help you, help your staff build their confidence and skill set in facilitating small group lessons.


Programs Included:

  • Graphics Practice: 15 Minutes, Pre-Recorded Course with Introduction to and Explanation of Graphics Practice
  • Name Puzzles
  • Name Writing


Each program contains:

  • The written protocol for BST program
  • The training program checklist
  • The training slide deck
  • Sample data collection* forms
  • A 2-page handout for trainees
  • A note catcher


These programs focus on utilizing small group instruction to provide exposure to foundational writing and spelling skills, and introduce our young learners to small group direct instruction in a developmentally appropriate way!


About Graphic Practice & Name Writing

These training programs focus on the basic motor planning skills needed to make meaningful marks, and write to communicate. Graphic practice incorporates self-regulation and creates a mind-body connection when writing by using music, and verbal paths while making intentional marks. Once exposed to the basic strokes needed to create letters and letter-like formations, students begin on practicing their first names. This begins with tracing before transferring to free writing. This gradual introduction of skills and release of independence provides a firm foundation of confidence for our young students.


About Name Puzzles

Using a students name, this is an engaging way to begin to expose young students to letters and letter sounds. Following the Science of Reading evidence, intentionally exposing students to letters and their sounds is an important part of their early literacy education.
