Writing educational programs and collecting data

The importance of collecting data and writing programs cannot be overstated. This method of documenting the treatment allows us to objectively monitor the progress of teaching. Graphs are a visual representation of the pace in which the child acquires new skills and enable a systematic, detailed analysis of the student’s progress.

Writing programs and collecting data should be done after the analysis and assessment of the child’s deficit areas. To maximize the effectiveness of treatment, we need to specify exactly:

  • what to teach and how to teach it; and
  • what materials will be needed to preform specific tasks.

Once we finish describing the educational and treatment programs, we should move on to planning the data collection. It is a crucial part of treatment which objectively shows if the training is effective. The programs also allow to continually analyze the progress of the child and, if necessary, make changes to the motivational system, teaching techniques, or the educational program itself.

Each pupil at IWRD completes as much as several dozen tasks per day. The programs are written individually for each child and registered once per week, while the progress from the programs is charted on graphs.

You can learn more about writing educational programs and collecting data from episode 5 of the online training series “15 Minutes for Treatment” available at www.15minutesfortreatment.com and chapter 5 of the book Skuteczna terapia dziecka z autyzmem (A. Budzińska, GWP 2020) – the book is only in polish language.
