EDEC 232 - Behavior Identification and Evaluation

Credit(s): 3

This course is designed to support educators in identifying and measuring behaviors, taking a close look at behaviors and how to support and/or reduce them and document behaviors for communication and collaboration opportunities. This course is taught by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and will help prepare educators for the Registered Behavior Technician certification content. A student taking the course does not need to take the certification assessment, but will not be considered an RBT by just taking the course.  The assessment for that certification is outside of the course and must be completed within 180 days of course completion. (Spring and Summer Semesters)

Course Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
  • Utilize behavior measurement.
  • Conduct assessments used within the context of children’s behaviors.
  • Apply skills applicable to children’s behaviors, collaboration, and behavior support.
  • Explain strategies for how to reduce behaviors.
  • Prepare students for the Registered Behavior Technician certification exam.
  • Complete documentation and reports about behaviors.
  • Explain and reflect on expectations for professional conduct and scope of practice.
