ED 667 - Internship/Seminar in Emotional and Behavioral Disorders

A full semester competency-based internship that includes involvement in planning, implementing, and evaluating instruction for students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) in a school setting and collaborative consultation with professionals and families. Under the supervision of an on-site supervisor with certification in EBD, the intern carries out diagnostic assessments for eligibility, remedial and adaptive instruction, and on-going informal assessment with students. The intern also participates in individual consultations with teachers, mental health providers, and family members and various team meetings including IEP and school-based support team meetings. In the seminar, interns discuss teaching and consulting experiences and synthesize and apply previously learned material. Interns share their experiences in specific areas such as: positive behavioral intervention and supports; use of evaluation data for planning IEPs and providing academic, social, and behavioral instruction; functional assessment techniques and implementation of behavior intervention plans; adaptations and modifications of academic and social curricula, teaching strategies, assessment techniques, and learning environments; collaborating and consulting with professionals and families; and involvement in ongoing procedures for documentation and implementation of state and federal guidelines.
