The STAR Program – Level I is part of a comprehensive, three-level program based on Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), using Discrete Trial (DT), Pivotal Response (PRT), and Functional Routine (FR) training strategies. The STAR Program helps students with autism and other developmental disabilities master receptive, expressive, and spontaneous language; functional skills; pre-academic concepts; and play and social interaction concepts.
Now in its second edition, the improved and enhanced STAR Program encompasses the latest research on evidence-based practices, includes feedback from professionals’ implementation and training on the program, and presents the authors’ knowledge gained from experiences over the last ten years. The primary goal of the program revision was to ease the program’s implementation with fidelity.
“Level I is appropriate for the beginning student who requires instruction in very-beginning attending, language, and social skills. This is the student that needs to learn how to learn. Level 1 program teaches basic safety skills, attending skills, the understanding that words have meaning, requesting needs and wants, playing and social skills, and independence in simple daily routines.” – Page 2 of Program Manual
