Functional Behavior Assessment
This course examines advanced techniques in functional behavioral assessment and analysis of aberrant behaviors for individuals with severe disabilities. There is an applied experience requirement for students to conduct an actual functional assessment or analysis in an educational setting, including creation of a behavior support plan based on functional hypotheses. Introduction to curriculum planning for students with severe disabilities will be covered, focusing on meeting functional needs in least restrictive environments. Development of communication skills/social relationships for students with disabilities will be examined, especially in relation to positive reduction of aberrant behaviors.
