This course provides a structured approach to systematically setting up practices for preventing challenging behavior. A practical set of ideas and tools will be provided to develop the resources and capacities of individuals to respond to the needs of students and develop the five core competencies of social and emotional learning to prevent challenging behavior.

The K-12 Service Team course provides a platform for Char-Em ISD itinerant staff members to share information related to evaluation, consultation and service delivery. In addition, the course is used for regular communication between and amongst staff members from various disciplines.

This eight-module training is a combination of a face-to-face and structured online instruction that provides participants with a deep knowledge of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a research-based practice that produces practical and socially significant changes in student behavior. Participants will learn principles of ABA and behavioral interventions to support student skill development in the learning environment. This training series is based on the Registered Behavior Technician Task List.  This course is offered independent of the BACB.   

Participants will increase: 

  • knowledge of ABA principles to address interfering behaviors and skills deficits that have not responded to universal school-based interventions
  • ability to accurately observe, record, graph and report behavior responses
  • use of ABA-based behavior change teaching procedures.


Resources for teachers, families and agencies are available.  Current events and hot topics are posted with upcoming opportunities for workshops or conferences posted.
