This Workshop focuses on students with Oppositional and Defiant Disorder (ODD), especially those who also have a diagnosis of disabilities. You’ll learn what ODD is and common causes; how to control learning environments and behavior to minimize outbursts; and how to help students with ODD – and disabilities – replace behaviors with other, more acceptable ones.

Learning Objectives

• Identify common characteristics and possible causes of ODD.
• Arrange learning environments and your own behavior in ways that discourage oppositional behavior.
• Recognize which responses can escalate conflict and actually encourage oppositional behavior.
• Identify strategies that help oppositional students replace inappropriate behaviors with more desirable ones.
• Explain how issues related to ODD are complicated when the student also has disabilities.
