Positive Behavior Strategies for Paraprofessionals. Strategies for Paraprofessionals Who Support Individuals with Disabilities. Facilitator Edition [and] Student Edition.
Hewitt, Amy; Langenfeld, Karen
This training module focuses on behavior management for children with disabilities, and is part of a training series for paraprofessionals working with students who have disabilities. The module is comprised of two components, a facilitator's guide and a student guide. The facilitator's guide provides the full text of the student's edition as well as chapter goals to be accomplished by students, an outline of topics covered in each text section, materials necessary to teach each chapter (such as transparencies, handouts, and supplemental readings), discussion questions, suggested activities to be completed by students outside of class, and lists of resources (many in Minnesota). Individual chapters cover the following topics: (1) behavior and the environment; (2) creating positive learning experiences; (3) an overview of challenging behavior; (4) alternatives to challenging behaviors; and (5) using behavioral interventions with students. Appendices provide a glossary of terms and information from the Minnesota Paraprofessional Consortium. (Contains 51 references.) (DB)
