In District Educational & Behavioral Consultation
In order to serve as many students as possible in the least restrictive settings, the PACES program provides educational, behavioral and social consultative services to educational and support staff members who are teaching children with ASD or similar learning/behavioral challenges in regular and special education classrooms. PACES Consultants may provide support to district staff in a variety of ways depending on the need. This support may include staff training, direct observation, assessment, and/or consultation in the following areas: applied behavioral analysis, inclusion, social skills instruction, behavior management, curriculum modification, program design and assistive technology. Districts can contract with PACES for ongoing weekly or monthly consultation or on an as needed basis throughout the school year. All PACES consultants hold at least a Master’s Degree in their field, are licensed and/or certified (DESE, BCBA, LABA) and have a minimum of 5 years’ experience.
Assessment & Evaluation:
We believe that all effective educators use ongoing assessments to determine their students’ ability levels in various academic, social, communication, behavioral, and adaptive skills in order to guide teaching and learning. In the realm of special education, this assessment process is absolutely essential to drive instruction and provide information so that effective instructional supports across all domains of learning both in and outside the classroom can be implemented. The PACES staff offers comprehensive evaluations/assessments in the following areas:
- Home-Based Service Assessment
- Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA)
- Social-Cognitive Assessment
- The assessment of basic language and learning skills: ABLLS
- The Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program: VB-MAPP
- The Adaptive Behavior Evaluation Scale-Third Edition: ABES
- The Assessment of Functional Living Skills: AFLS
- Transition Assessment
- College-Readiness Assessment
