Self Management: Increase Student Independence for Success in Life. Self-management interventions help students learn to independently regulate their behaviors and act appropriately in a variety of home, school, and community situations. Self-management interventions can be used to target skills in all domains including language, communication, social, behavioral, and adaptive. Self-management is not only an evidenced-based intervention, but also a foundational skill that can make it easier to teach learners a variety of other skills, therefore increasing independence and over reliance on adults. This course will utilize online tools to collaborate and provide video and reflection sharing. This course is a blended learning opportunity that incorporates online as well as in-person course work.
