Capstone Project Title
Finding creative and engaging ways to effectively teach social skills to students with emotional and behavioral disorders is a common goal for many special education teachers. Additionally, finding ways to increase the generalization of these skills across setting and post-high school, is another important goal area that student teams work to address as they develop meaningful transition plans. This capstone project answers the question, what specific research based practices can be used in the development of a curriculum that focuses on both social skill acquisition and generalization across settings? This capstone project includes a six week unit that focuses on specific social skill acquisition, creative and engaging methods for practice and experiences that foster the generalization of these skills across settings. Guiding students to become self-determined and involved members of their individualized education plan (IEP) team through student-led IEP meetings culminates the unit.
