SPCE 604 Applied Behavior Analysis for Teachers

Intended to equip teachers serving students with disabilities with the knowledge and skills to systematically alter students’ academic, functional, or problem behaviors. Although the emphasis will be on the use of the methodology of applied behavior analysis, other behavioral interventions such as School-Wide Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (SW-PBIS) will be discussed. Teachers learn to apply the tactics and strategies of behavior-change technology to socially significant problems. Prerequisite: SPCE 201 or 600 or permission of the graduate advisor.
