ASD:Proactive Behavior Mgmt
Academic Term and Year
Too often, students with autism are 'treated' with behavior management strategies that expect the student to have necessary skills in the areas of emotional regulation, perspective-taking, and executive functioning. The emergence of scientific information regarding behavior and brain function should compel us to rethink many of our preconceived ideas about challenging behaviors and the strategies we use for intervention. In addition, research regarding emotional regulation development and sensory systems deficits, offers us an increased understanding of why our students struggle in specific situations. This class examines behavior management philosophy, sensory and emotional regulation research, tools for Functional Behavior Assessments, and strategies for writing Positive Behavior Support Plans for students on the autism spectrum. Prerequisite: SPED 7100 Credits: 2 Note: This course is required for the completion of the Autism Spectrum Disorders certification and may also be taken as an elective for the Other Health Disabilities Certificate.
