SEDU 359 - Managing Challenging Behavior

3 hours
In this course, candidates study the use of appropriate non-aversive least intrusive management procedures when presented with a variety of behavioral problems including challenging behavior. Candidates learn strategies for classroom management, individual behavior management, crisis prevention, conflict resolution, and the effective use of reinforcement. Additionally strategies and techniques to arrange and modify the learning environment to facilitate learning according to students’ emotional, social, and behavioral needs are also considered. As part of this course, candidates study and complete functional assessments of behavior and develop behavior intervention plans based on student case studies. In addition, the disproportionate use of punitive, exclusionary disciplinary practices with diverse student populations is examined.
