The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the philosophy and methods of functional behavioural assessment and the development of positive behaviour support plans for persons who engage in challenging behaviour in home, school, and community settings. Topics covered will include principles of behaviour change, summary hypothesis statements and competing behaviour pathway diagrams, design of multi-component behaviour support plans, and the design of plans that are both technically sound and contextually-appropriate.
