SPED 504. Collaborative Behavioral Supports and Transition for Inclusive Education

This course addresses social and behavioral supports for students with disabilities through collaborative models such as restorative justice. Students will explore contemporary and culturally-responsive models of school-wide and individualized behavioral supports. Students will examine the impact of social, emotional, linguistic, physical and aesthetic development learning in early childhood, childhood, and adolescence. Students learn to design environments that are supportive of all learners at varying developmental levels and to prepare those learners for transition to post-school contexts. Creation of alliances with paraprofessionals and colleagues and provision of mutual academic, social, emotion, and technical support systems, including co-teaching, are examined within the framework of building relationships to strengthen the school, family, and community.
