SMD 650 - Seminar in Supporting Students with Challenging Behaviors in Inclusive Settings


This course will focus on understanding the educational support needs of students with challenging behaviors (including students with emotional disturbance, behavior disorders, and autism) whose behavior may interfere with learning. These students are often at risk of being excluded from inclusive settings. This course will focus on the development of a positive, strength-based, problem-solving orientation to the needs of students with challenging behaviors. Students will collaborate with educators, other service providers, families, and students themselves in conducting a functional behavior assessment (FBA) and designing a positive support plan. Support plans will be designed to address strategies to prevent problems, to teach alternative skills and self- management, and to respond to behavioral crises. Collaborating and consulting with others in supporting students with challenging behaviors will be emphasized. 25 hours field work required. Course offered once per year, each spring semester.
