This presentation will examine the process of behavior analysis for teachers that have students with autism spectrum in general education classes. This setting poses challenges that must be considered in light of this disability, zero tolerance and student needs. Too often, inconsistent behavior plans leave students and teachers confused as to why behaviors return. This lecture will identify the key components for analyzing the inappropriate behaviors and identify ways to improve student performance, increasing the likelihood for inclusion.
This session will also examine many examples of behavior plans that have proven successful for students with ASD in inclusive classrooms, from elementary to high school. In addition, this session will be interactive, with problem-solving behaviors solicited from the participants.
