Audio Conference At-a-Glance
Tuesday, February 7, 2017 • 12 - 1:30 p.m. ET The Latest Must-Dos and Need-to-Knows of Behavioral Supports in IEPs Presented by Lori Ernsperger, Ph.D.
When students with disabilities do not receive appropriate behavioral interventions and supports, it can result in repeated short-term disciplinary removals detrimental to educational progress — not to mention stress and frustration for staff.
Find out how to turn the tide and reduce disciplinary removals that can lead to a denial of FAPE. Dr. Lori Ernsperger will start by explaining OSERS/OSEP's recent Letter on the Inclusion of Behavioral Supports in Individualized Education Programs, which states the agencies’ position on the relationship between behavioral interventions and provision of FAPE.
Then, this board-certified behavior analyst will guide you and your staff through reducing challenging behaviors in the classroom with evidence-based interventions that support student success across all settings. You’ll get specific guidance to:
Implement positive behavior supports for students who exhibit repeated patterns of misbehavior
Ensure repeated incidents of misbehavior are adequately addressed by the IEP team
Utilize behavioral supports throughout a continuum of placement options
Reduce interfering behaviors to improve student outcomes
Collaborate with parents following a disciplinary removal to revise the current IEP
