Topics investigated include the continuum of behavior disorders, classroom organizational models, writing behavior intervention plans to address challenging behaviors, laws related to behavior and methods to establish the criteria for the manifestation determination of behavior. Candidates complete 25 hours of field study in a general education or special education classroom.
