Special Education and Autism: How to Manage Challenging Behaviours in the Classroom

 

Description

  ArtEnvironment

 Applied behaviour analysis (ABA) is most commonly used in special education classes to treat behavioural problems among special needs students. However, many of the theories and precepts common in education in general today have also grown out of the science of behaviour analysis.

The story of applied behaviour analysis in education, first introduced in the United States, is inextricably tied to the significant increase in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnoses among school-age children that emerged in the mid-1990s. Suddenly, classrooms were overwhelmed with special needs children who exhibited sometimes severe behavioural issues, impacting both their own education and the schooling of others. Towards the end of the same decade, in 1999, a report ("Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon General") was released confirming that ABA was one of a few scientifically valid treatments for autism. Today both parents and school administrators are increasingly concluding that such treatments offer the best outcomes for children.

 
 

Although ABA techniques are used widely for children with ASD, they are also effectively used with special education students of all stripes, and often in general education classrooms as well. This course is addressed to teachers, professionals and teaching assistants working in both mainstream and special education environments. Participants will learn more about autism and how to best support children with ASD in the classroom.

Participants will also learn more about the science of behaviour and its applications (ABA) in the classroom. The course will focus on strategies that use positive reinforcement and will help participants to successfully manage challenging behaviours not only for children with ASD but also for the whole classroom. From a general overview of autism and ABA to more advanced subject matter like dealing with challenging behaviour, this training has something to offer to education professionals.
