Chow, Jason C.; Walters, Sharon; Hollo, Alexandra – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2020
For all children and youth, language underpins success in academic, social, and behavioral interactions. For students with language deficits, even seemingly simple tasks can be challenging and frustrating. Perhaps not surprising, children with language deficits often exhibit high rates of problem behavior, and children with behavior disorders tend…

When a student exhibits challenging classroom behaviors that are resistant to traditional classroom management systems, his/her individualized education program (IEP) team conducts a functional behavior assessment (FBA). The FBA process is a series of assessments designed to identify the function of the student's behavior. This is done by…

The research illustrated throughout this article supports the cycle of creating reading and behavior goals, monitoring of goals, and reflecting on goals to improve future goals. This article provides examples of how teachers of small-group reading interventions can incorporate these brief and targeted self-regulation interventions as part of…

Fallon, Lindsay M.; Kurtz, Kathryn D. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
Students may benefit from evidence-based interventions to support their classroom learning (Carmago et al., 2016). Additionally, laws and policies, such as the Every Student Succeeds Act (2015) and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (2006), mandate the implementation of evidence-based practices to improve student outcomes in schools.…

With state testing requirements, response to intervention (RTI), and positive behavior interventions and…

Robertson, Rachel E.; Coy, Justin N. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
When student behavior problems persist despite effective classroom management and vary in intensity depending on factors outside of teacher control, teachers are often left feeling discouraged and ineffective (Clunies-Ross, Little, & Kienhuis, 2008). Teachers may know how to handle behavior problems associated with classroom-based antecedents…

Pokorski, Elizabeth A. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
Many teachers struggle with effectively managing challenging behavior, which occurs in the majority of classrooms serving young children. Teachers of young children (ages 3-8) commonly cite noncompliance, aggression, disruptive behavior, and poor social skills as being among the most challenging behaviors (Snell et al., 2012). For many of these…

Knudsen, Molly E.; Bethune, Keri S. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
There is an overrepresentation of students with disabilities within the population of students excluded (i.e., suspended or expelled) from school. Students with disabilities are suspended for behaviors that are, for the most part, nonviolent and not unlike the behaviors of their general education peers. The Individuals With Disabilities Education…

Coy, Justin N.; Kostewicz, Douglas E. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Commonly used in research settings, noncontingent reinforcement (NCR) is a function-based intervention for decreasing challenging behaviors (Carr, Severtson, & Lepper, 2009). Function-based interventions effectively change behavior through detailed analysis of why the behavior occurs (Lane, Kalberg, & Shepcaro, 2009). Practitioners…

Collins, Lauren W.; Cook, Sara Cothren; Sweigart, Chris A.; Evanovich, Lauren L. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
There is a growing body of research that supports the use of performance feedback as a method of increasing teachers' use of effective practices (Cornelius & Nagro, 2014; Sweigart et al., 2016). Put simply, performance feedback involves a colleague or coach observing a teacher and providing specific feedback about the instruction to increase a…

Estrapala, Sara; Rila, Ashley; Bruhn, Allison Leigh – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Students who misbehave represent a range of backgrounds, and behavior problems are likely to be present in both general and special education classrooms. To this end, thousands of schools across the country have adopted positive behavior interventions and supports (PBIS) as a way to prevent and respond to challenging behavior. PBIS is a federally…

Walker, Jennifer D.; Barry, Colleen – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Social skills instruction (SSI) provides a promising avenue for teaching and promoting positive social interactions to students with high-incidence disabilities. Within SSI, a distinction can be made between social skills and social competence. Social skills are specific behaviors one must perform correctly within a specific social context or…

DiGennaro Reed, Florence D.; Blackman, Abigail L.; Erath, Tyler G.; Brand, Denys; Novak, Matthew D. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Failure to provide adequate teacher training related to a specific intervention or approach during consultation may be associated with a host of negative outcomes. Requiring teachers to implement an intervention with little to no training increases the probability that the intervention will not have the intended effect and subsequently will fail…

Wood, Charles L.; Kisinger, Kerry W.; Brosh, Chelsi R.; Fisher, Larry B.; Muharib, Reem – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Many teachers have difficulty supporting students with challenging behavior. Students who shout out, are frequently off task, have a tantrum, or don't follow directions can be disruptive and bring a teacher's lesson to a halt. Other students may struggle to communicate their needs. As a result, these students may engage in challenging behavior to…

Elopement is a dangerous behavior that requires diligence from school personnel in order to effectively reduce its occurrence. Using a step-by-step process to identify the reasons goal-directed elopement occurs and then implementing an intervention to effectively teach…
