SPED 514 Behavioral Assessment and Interventions

Focus on the effective use of behavioral assessment and intervention in inclusive and special education classrooms. Students will learn to identify, analyze, implement, and evaluate interventions through the framework of positive behavior supports (PBS). Emphasis will be placed on developing evidence-based behavior intervention plans (BIPs) for students who exhibit challenging behaviors in schools by working through the Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) process.  In accordance with CT law, districts may require criminal background and/or DCF child abuse and neglect registry checks to participate in the field experiences in this class.  Students are required to follow the background check policies of the district in which they are placed and are responsible for all associated fees.  CCSU is not responsible for district policies.
