Tied to attendance at the June 19-20 Colorado Department of Education 2019 Summer Institute on Deaf-Blindness and Significant Support Needs.
This 2-day (15 clock hour) course will provide insights on how to best plan for the instructional needs of students with deaf-blindness and/or significant support needs. The focus in recognizing our responsibility as the “avenue to the experience.” We have a charge to make the learning and teaching criterion both functional and meaningful with emphasis on respectful, “quality of life” interactions.
This two-day presentation will provide strategies to assist in the development, selection, and implementation of various behavior intervention techniques, as well as “frameworks” to help determine chronological, age appropriate activities, that are purposeful and learner specific.

Following this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify specific frameworks for developing meaningful behavior intervention practice

- Navigate a task analysis with unique considerations for creating meaningful/functional, and chronological age-appropriate instruction
- Apply “self” skills which promote safety and accountability when intervening during challenging behavior demonstrations
- Demonstrate intervention practices that emphasize ownership of behavior
- Re-evaluate practices involved in data collection for the purpose of writing productive behavior intervention plans
