Description: As there is a major push from the federal government for implementation of school-wide positive behavior support systems, it is important for school staff to learn how to create and manage successful classroom environments. This workshop will discuss the key tenets of applied behavior analysis and how they translate into the classroom setting. Participants will leave the workshop with a better understanding of how to implement evidence-based strategies, provide resources in order to enhance students' overall engagement in the school environment, and systematically monitor students' progress via effective and efficient data collection.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) describe general classroom management strategies rooted in the methods of applied behavior analysis; (2) describe empirically supported interventions and strategies to support students who exhibit challenging behaviors in the school environment; (3) effectively and efficiently collect data.
Activities: The format combines lecture, small group activities, and guided practice.
Audience: The target audience for the proposed workshop include: teachers, practitioners, educators, administrators, school psychologists, speech-language pathologist, occupational therapists, and paraeducators/paraprofessionals
Content Area: Practice
Instruction Level: Basic
