Understanding-and-Responding-to-Behavior-in-the-General-Education-Environment

Duration 01h20m

This Workshop walks you through the five steps of behavior analysis: identifying problem behaviors, taking data, developing hypotheses, determining probable function/s. and creating a behavioral plan, with the ultimate goal of decreasing problem behaviors.

Learning Objectives

• Use five steps of behavior analysis to assess problem behaviors in a student with disabilities.
• Record antecedent-behavior-consequence data on problem behaviors.
• Develop hypotheses on antecedents and triggers that precede problem behaviors, and determine their probable behavioral functions.
• Create a behavioral plan to address problem behaviors, based on analysis.

Introduction-to-Data-Collection

Duration 00h25m

This Workshop addresses the importance of taking and using data when working with students diagnosed with disabilities. You’ll review the meaning, in this context, of “systematic, quantitative data” and learn easy ways to record it. You’ll also learn about the four dimensions of behavior – duration, intensity, frequency, and latency. And finally, you’ll see ways to display your results in easy-to-understand form.

Learning Objectives

• Explain the meaning and importance of the term “systematic, quantitative data” in the context of working with a student with disabilities.
• Record behavioral information using the four dimensions of behavior.
• Use a graphical format to report findings based on the recorded data.
