What is the Pre-Practicum Course?
The purpose of the Autism Preliminary Practicum (“Pre-Prac”) course is to develop a basic Discrete-Trial Training repertoire in undergraduate and graduate students prior to their entrance into the KRESA West Campus Practicum. Pre-Prac is a 1-credit course that begins the last seven weeks of the semester. This course can be added to your schedule late without any penalty. During the Pre-Prac class, students will learn about autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and applied behavior analysis as a treatment for ASD, the procedures and policies we use at our practicum, role-play with peers and receive feedback from instructors, and visit West Campus to apply the skills learned in class to working with the kids at our practicum site.
