ED 6055 - Social and Affective Interventions


This course will apply research-validated practices from eclectic theoretical perspectives to classroom and individual behavior management. Candidates will learn and practice strategies for social and affective intervention from the fields of psychoeducational, behavioral, cognitive behavioral, humanistic, and attribution restructuring therapies. Candidates will design positive behavior supports plans, write a behavior intervention program (BIP), and examine the role of Response-To-Intervention (RtI) in the pre-referral process for students with mild/moderate cross-categorical (MM/CC) disabilities. Social skill development techniques will be reviewed with emphasis placed on students diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), emotional/behavioral disorder (EBD), and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Candidates will explore the legalities and prevention of manifestation determination hearings.
