2013 Deaf Students with Developmental Disabilities Summer Institute

This 5 day intensive Summer Institute will provide comprehensive training in functional assessment and positive behavior support (PBS) with a specific focus on application with deaf students who have additional developmental disabilities. Deaf children with developmental disabilities frequently engage in problem behaviors that find them isolated from educational settings. Participants will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the nature of problem behavior, specific strategies for understanding the purpose(s) served by problem behavior, as well as strategies for designing multi-component interventions plans in collaboration with families and/or other professionals.
