ABA 522 - Treatment of Severely Challenging Behavior

In the field of Special Education and providing services for individuals with developmental disabilities, it is not uncommon for providers to encounter severe behavioral challenges that are resistant to traditional interventions.  The purpose of this course is to provide students with a review and analysis of interventions and strategies for the management of severely challenging behaviors. Case studies will be provided to guide students in the process of developing plans to teach clients safer, prosocial behaviors, manage the behavior when it occurs, training of staff and parents, developing crisis protocols, assessing environments for safety in managing the behaviors and working with staff to maintain morale as they encounter these behaviors while developing a rapport with their clients.
