ABA 502 - Social Skills for Learners with Emotional Behavioral Disorders


Social skills interventions are particularly important for young children and are a large area of focus in the school setting. Despite the increased focus in this area of learning, there are few empirically validated strategies to teach these types of skills. Furthermore, many treatments are used as packaged interventions, making it difficult to isolate the critical variables. Within this course, positions about “best
practices” in educational and clinical approaches to assessment and intervention in these areas will be
emphasized. Students will explore empirically validated treatments and evidence based practice issues
related to intervention in the realm of social skills.
