EEX 4232 Identification and Assessment of Individuals with Autism

This course provides class participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to critically analyze the processes in place to identify students with low incidence disabilities. The influence of such disabilities of development and learning in a least restrictive environment is explored. Inherent in this is the complexity of learning needs that this group of students experience, and for many students, the co-morbidity of different developmental disabilities along with the influences of societal and environmental issues. This course also provides participants with the ability to appropriately assess the skills and abilities of students with severe disabilities in a way that assessment results can be translated into meaningful educational interventions in a least restrictive environment.
