EDUC 5293 Behavior Management 3 credits

This course examines research-based strategies and techniques that teachers can use in working with students who have exceptional  learning needs and whose behavior interferes with their success.  These students include students with problems related to sustaining attention, hyperactivity, aggression, and oppositional defiance.  Participants will learn to: (1) identify problem behaviors through  understanding antecedents and consequences of behavior (e.g. Functional Behavior Analysis); (2) develop age-appropriate interventions and plans (e.g. Positive Behavior Intervention Plans) and other data-driven decision-making techniques for evaluating the effectiveness of interventions (e.g. observations); and (3) collaborate with parents and other professionals in developing and implementing behavior intervention plans. An understanding of professional ethical guidelines, relevant state and federal laws and regulations, and the importance of developing students’ self-management skills will also be explored.
