reauthorized IDEA and aligned accountability systems for students with those described in the NCLB
IEP Process and IDEA Improvement Act
- requires benchmarks and short-term objective for students who do not take districtwide or statewide assessments.
- Plans for the transition to work and living in the community must be present in the IEP no later than 16 years old
- children must be at least 3 for IEP
Due Process and IDEA Improvement
students with disabilities have the right to remain in school during an appeal on a school code violation that can result in removal for more than 10 days. unless the violation involves drugs, weapons, or dangerous behavior
students do not need to meet the criteria of IDEA to receive accommodations and services. If a student has a mental or physical impairment that has a significant impact on a major life activity- such as learning- he or she may receive accommodations and services.
- Gun-Free School Act
- states to receive funds under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act have zero tolerance for weapons in the schools
- weapon is defined as guns, bombs, grenades, rockets,and missiles.
Elements of an IEP
- 3 parts
- 1. a written statement including a description of the student's present level of academic achievement and functional performance
- 2. a statement of measurable annual goals- including both academic and functional goals- that support the child in making progress in the general curriculum or to meet other educational needs that result from the disability.
- 3.how the student's progress toward those goals will be measured and reported.
Developmental and constructivist model definition
whether students develop as persons and progress through developmental tasks
Biobehavioral Model definition
emphasis on organic origins of human behavior
Ecological Model Definition
the impact of the environment on human behavior
Behavioral Model definition
scientific approach to the examination of behavior- including verbal behavior and private events.

5 principles of management
- 1. reinforcement is dependent on the exhibition of the target behavior
- 2.The target behavior is to be reinforced immediately after it is exhibited
- 3.During the initial stage of the behavior change process, the target behavior is reinforced each time it is exhibited
- 4.When the target behavior reaches a satisfactory level, it is reinforced intermittently
- 5.If tangible reinforcers are applied, social reinforcers are always applied with them
Continuous schedule of reinforcement
requires presentation of the reinforcer immediately after each occurrence of the target behavior
Fixed ratio schedule
the reinforcer is presented after a specific number of appropriate responses are exhibited by the child
variable ration schedule
the ratio of reinforcer presentation varies around the response mean or average
fixed interval schedule
a specific period of time must elapse before the reinforcer is presented
variable interval schedule
presentation of the reinforcer is based on a behavioral response mean or average
presentation of a desirable reinforcer after a behavior has been exhibited.
removal of a reinforcer that is sustaining or increasing a beahvior
the removal of an already operating aversive stimulus
- addition of an adversive stimulus
- subtraction of a pleasurable item or activity
behavior reinforced in one situation will be exhibited in another situation
we learn that we act one way in one situation and another way in a different situation.
effects of consequences
- positive reinforcement increases the target behavior
- negative reinforcement may increase or decrease behavior depending on the target behavior
- punishment and extinction decrease the target behavior
