Ackerman, Kera B.; Samudre, Mark; Allday, R. Allan – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2020
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…

Roberts, Garrett J.; Solis, Michael; Chance, Becky – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
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…

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…

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.…

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…

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…

Phillips, Lauren A.; Briggs, Adam M.; Fisher, Wayne W.; Greer, Brian D. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2018
Elopement occurs when an individual runs away from or leaves a supervised area. 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…

Lewis, Timothy J.; Hatton, Heather L.; Jorgenson, Courtney; Maynard, Deanna – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
New--and often veteran--teachers find managing significant inappropriate student behavior a formidable challenge. Although more severe inappropriate behaviors, such as aggression, often receive attention in the professional literature, survey research has shown that the high frequency of milder inappropriate behaviors (e.g., disruptions,…

Hirsch, Shanna E.; Bruhn, Allison L.; Lloyd, John Wills; Katsiyannis, Antonis – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
There is substantial empirical evidence that the Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA) process is an effective means to reduce student problem behavior and increase desirable behaviors (e.g., What Works Clearinghouse, 2016). The use of an FBA as the basis for a behavior intervention plan (BIP) has been a requirement for certain disciplinary…

Fuchs, Lynn S.; Fuchs, Douglas; Malone, Amelia S. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
This article describes the Taxonomy of Intervention Intensity, which articulates seven principles for evaluating and building intervention intensity based upon research. The Taxonomy's seven dimensions of intensity are strength, dosage, alignment, attention to transfer, comprehensiveness, behavioral support, and individualization (see Table 1). In…

Clouse, Diane E.; Bauer, Anne M. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2016
Self-advocacy, self-management, self-regulation, and self-knowledge are complex terms, often considered forms of self-determination. Whatever term you may use, helping young adults with intellectual disability (ID) make authentic decisions about their own goals and behaviors often results in passive agreement. Even though advancing…
