These programs rely on the use of clear instructions, reinforcement, teaching small units of behavior, and repeated trials to maximize learning opportunities.When utilized with younger children, these interventions are often referred to as “early intensive behavioral interventions” (EIBI).In his ground-breaking study “Visible Learning” he ranked 138 influences that are related to learning outcomes from very positive effects to very negative effects.Hattie found that the average effect size of all the interventions he studied was 0.40.It is hypothesized that early intervention may ultimately reduce the considerable lifetime cost and system demands associated with providing care and support to individuals with ASD and their families.
Skills frequently targeted include attention, discrimination, language/communication, socialization, as well as more advanced educational skills (e.g., reading, math).
According to Hattie the story underlying the data has hardly changed over time even though some effect sizes were updated and we have some new entries at the top, at the middle, and at the end of the list.
food diet, that is foods that are organically grown or raised, and as local, freshly prepared and seasonal as possible.
Rather than getting caught up in whether you should go paleo, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, plant-based, raw vegan, or follow the blood type diet or even genetic typing (to mention just a few diets that are popular today), it would be much better to understand the fundamentals of eating REAL FOOD, the completely entangled relationship between thinking and food, and how our uniqueness spreads throughout our spirit, soul, and body.
