MDE OSE: Free Applied Behavior Analysis in Schools Course
May 10, 2022
The Michigan Department of Education Office of Special Education (MDE OSE) is excited to announce the release of Applied Behavior Analysis in Schools, which is a free virtual course developed by Amy Matthews and Stephanie Dyer of START.
This course was designed to provide an overview of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), including what it is and how it is used in schools, build awareness and understanding of ABA, and address current questions and concerns from districts, intermediate school districts, parents, and advocates. ABA in Schools is full of highly relevant information for general and special education teachers and administrators, as well as other district and ISD personnel who work with students with disabilities in their continued effort to ensure positive outcomes for students with a disability.
During this course, you will learn several ways ABA can be applied in schools, strategies for strengthening the use of ABA practices for all students, how ABA is used in specific educational programs, and how to invest in preparing staff to use ABA effectively.
This course was developed to be flexible in its use, as both a stand-alone, self-paced course and as a supplement to in-person or blended learning opportunities. You can find out more, including how to access the course, here.
