The STAR Program – Level III is part of a comprehensive, three-level program based on Applied Behavioral Analysis, 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 III expands the language skills learned in Level II and teaches more complex academic skills in reading, writing, and math needed to access general education. Level III teaches the student to answer expanded social questions; yes/no questions; to ask questions using prepositions, descriptors, and pronouns in sentences; and to do academic skills that include adding or subtracting one-digit numbers, money use, time telling, reading in a simple book, and writing from memory. At Level III, students learn to be independent throughout the school day and expand on their participation in the general education classroom.” Pages 2-3 of the Program Manual
