This course examines ideas and introduces effective procedures for
working with students with high support needs related to emotional
and behavioral disabilities (EBDs). Starting with prevention and
early intervention as the basis for implementing effective and
intensive proactive interventions, comprehensive strategies
discussed include working with families as partners; developing
interagency, cross-disciplinary networks (e.g., systems of care);
using contemporary assessment and instructional approaches (e.g.,
PBIS); and reducing reliance on restrictive settings (e.g.,
psychiatric placements, incarceration, separate schools). The study
of data is emphasized, with a critical focus placed on improving
student-level outcomes including academics; social skills; other
life domains (e.g., community, recreation/leisure, home living,
vocational, etc.); and facilitating the least restrictive
environment.
