Individual Behavior Change: Part 1 - Understanding Behavior

 

Not every person with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) has a behavior or mental health problem that warrants a behavior change plan of any kind to address it. Where challenging behavioral responses do occur, however, they can create significant problems for the individual. This course is part one of a two-part training on creating and implementing an individualized plan for behavior change. In this part, you will be provided with a framework for understanding behavior by looking at the variables that comprise an individual’s unique pattern of behavior. You will learn about specific types of variables and how they are evaluated in the context of a multimodal assessment. You will also learn how to use the information you gain from this type of analysis to develop highly effective behavior change plans.
