This course provides a comprehensive study of learners with emotional or behavioral disorders encompassing characteristics, assessments, placement alternatives, inclusive environments and family interventions. Topics include etiology of emotional or behavioral disorders, appropriate intervention strategies, early intervention/special educational referral and transition processes, family and community partnerships, inclusive environments, and legislative mandates. Upon completion, students should be able to identify characteristics of behavior for which additional supports are needed, describe the referral processes, identify community resources, collaborate with families/professionals, understand the importance of advocacy for learners, and recognize appropriate intervention strategies in inclusive environments.
