Course Syllabus

Has challenging behavior interfered with your classroom instruction? If so, this class was designed with you in mind! Teachers will learn about the functions of behavior to identify why individual students may choose to act out in different ways.  Specific instances of common disruptive and/or other challenging behavior will also be addressed, including self-injurious and aggressive behavior, with a special emphasis on students with disabilities.  Finally, innovative and creative methods, strategies, and procedures will be suggested to assist teachers in developing a repertoire of skills in which they can rely on to limit and manage challenging behavior exhibited by their students.
