Incidental Teaching: An Introduction

Sharing is caring!

You are probably already using incidental teaching in your classroom or speech sessions but maybe you don't realize it. Take 5-minutes and find out how you are using or could use an evidence-based strategy from applied behavior analysis to teach communication to your students with autism and other disabilities.Next up in the Effective Interventions in ABA I thought I would address some naturalistic interventions starting with incidental teaching.  Incidental teaching is a long-standing ABA procedure that has a rich history in teaching many skills including communication.  It is used with typical kids all the time and it has been used in research on how to address language delays. One of the real advantages of incidental teaching is that it teaches the student to initiate the action by arranging them environment to tempt communication.  Initiation of communication is often a skill that is particularly difficult for many students with ASD.

To give you a brief overview of the steps of incidental teaching, I created a video.  Disclosure: I needed to create a video for a course that I teach that adheres to specific requirements of 5 words or less per slide, no more than 5 slides in the presentation and the presentation has to be 5 minutes or less.  I wanted to make a sample for my students to see how it would work, so I combined the two to create this post.  Below the video I’ve listed some resources for incidental teaching as well.

I will be taking a brief break and may or may not be blogging, but follow me on Instagram to see what I’m up to.  I’ll be back with the next installment about incidental teaching in a little over a week back to the regular Thursday-Friday schedule.

Until then,
