Behavioral Consultant Training Module.
Indiana State Dept. of Education, Indianapolis. Div. of Special Education.
This training module describes and defines the role of the behavioral consultant and strategies for time management, problem solving, providing teacher support, and establishing collaborative relationships within the school, between home and school, and between school and community. The first of three workshops addresses the role of the behavioral consultant as a resource person, diagnostician, and trainer whose responsibilities include providing suggestions for adapting materials, referral to outside agencies for additional services, behavior management suggestions, follow-up for all intervention recommendations, classroom observation, student and teacher interviews, case conference participation, assistance to regular and special education teachers, and providing staff development workshops. A second workshop focuses on competency in organizational skills (time management, maintaining files), while the third addresses interpersonal skills in the form of problem-solving, verbal and nonverbal communication, and personal coping. Sample report forms and handouts (including a copy of the Behavior Questionnaire) are provided, and a list of references concludes the document. (JW)
