#70 TAGteach: A Useful Tool in Educational Settings

2:30-3:50 PM

Chair: Theresa McKeon       1.5 CE-BA


In this symposium, the application of TAGteach in the public school setting will be discussed. TAGteach is a technology based on the use of “markers”or auditory stimuli paired with the delivery of reinforcement to teach new behaviors. “TAG” stands for Teaching with Acoustical Guidance and is demonstrated in Dr. Julie Vargas' new book, “Behavior Analysis for Effective Teaching”. Practitioners of TAGteach argue for its effectiveness in many endeavors across a wide range of populations. One setting TAGteach has demonstrated its effectiveness is in the educational setting. It starts from a point of success for the learner and the teacher, creates positive communication, eliminates nagging, and delivers instant reinforcement; all of which are important skills when working with children with various disabilities and skill deficits.
