Topics in this course will include: understanding the behaviors, the difference between symptoms and problems, redirection to appropriate behaviors, individual and whole classroom interventions, behavior management strategies, social skills development, and cultural competency. Additionally, this course will focus on available assessments that can support the data collection necessary to identify cognitive and behavioral issues and monitor interventions to support an Individual Education Plan (IEP).
