SE5564 - PBIS: Comprehensive Approaches for Students with Intense and Chronic Needs

Credits: 3

This course exposes students to comprehensive, multi-system approaches designed to enhance the emotional well being and reduce the problem behavior of students with intense and chronic needs including those identified as emotionally disturbed under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA). Using the PBIS approach to systems change, students will learn how to develop and implement, in collaboration with families and community partners, a process for addressing the behavior and functioning of students who are not experiencing success with universal and targeted interventions. Topics include wraparound planning for multiple life domains, interagency coordination, family involvement, community involvement, methods for changing behavior, affect and cognitions, and evaluating the intensive system using data based decision making.
