Bridging this real-life experience with the theories of instruction in the virtual course environment, this assignment mirrors a career building experience.
Instructions: Using support from your assigned reading, the Instructor Guidance, and the discussions, submit the following for evaluation.
In previous coursework, you have learned about the process of developing an IEP and the participation of a multidisciplinary team to, in part, plan and develop key goals around the student’s areas of strengths and weaknesses. It is important to access previous video examples, discussions, and other coursework as you develop this plan. You have been collecting these web addresses in your link-library. This would be a perfect time to access them.
In this example, you will focus on one document that is written by the team and that will become part of the student’s IEP. This document, known as the Behavior Plan, specifically identifies and addresses behaviors considered to be inappropriate and/or dangerous. It is a plan that changes the environment to shape a student’s behavior in a positive manner. Replacement behaviors are then identified and designed for the purpose of changing the inappropriate behaviors to something more appropriate. Also included in this plan are positive behavioral interventions, strategies, and supports.
Use the below guidelines and attached rubric to create the Behavior Plan. If you have questions about the assignment or the rubric, please contact your Instructor using the Ask Your Instructor discussion before the due date.
