Course Description

This course establishes the foundations for employing positive approaches in the treatment of people with developmental disabilities and autism spectrum disorders by covering the principles of equal opportunity and self-determination and their relationship to self-determined learning. This basis leads to prescriptions for self-determined learning and positive behaviors.

The course covers:
(a) approaches for dealing with challenging behavior (functional; behavior assessments; positive behaviors supports, and supportive instructional environments),
(b) instruction methods (teaching self-regulation of inappropriate behavior, social behavior, and play; and the teaching of generalized self-regulation of independent work);
(c) principles of curriculum design;
(d) curriculum guides for self-determined learning (schedule following and self-monitoring; and self-regulation and self-determined learning);
(e) school to work transition (generalization and adjustments during transition, transition programming, student-directed IEPs;
(f) supported work (assessing workplace interests and opportunities, assessing and teaching cue-card use at work; teaching problem solving for adjustments at work; and
(g) evaluation methods (daily progress evaluation; evaluations of self-determined learning, assessments of self-determination).
