Research has demonstrated that CBI is effective in teaching students with severe disabilities the skills they need to participate in the community. Benefits to CBI include learning and generalizing skills in the natural environment, in addition to providing opportunities for inclusion with community members and peers (Dymond, 2012; Snell & Brown, 2006). However, due to barriers, teachers may not be able to use CBI as frequently as they would like. Therefore, it is important that teachers purposefully plan for CBI in order to maximize their time spent in the community. This session will provide recommendations for addressing the individual needs of students when designing CBI, including how to prioritize skills for instruction and how to plan for teaching in the community.. Session attendees will be able to: 1) Conduct an ecological inventory; 2) Identify how to select target skills for individual students; and 3) Understand how to write an instructional program for teaching in the community
