Then students learned how to determine the role culture play in the school environment. After understanding the culture of a school, students were asked to analyze how to develop a collaborative working relationship with classroom teachers. The final step was to construct a plan for working with the stakeholders in implementing an Individualized Educational Plans (IEP). Schools 3 Introduction I have attended ABA 610 Role and Functions of Schools for about a month. The purpose of this paper is to show my understanding of what I have learned in the past month about school roles and school functions. I will begin with the working structure of schools in the K-12 environment. During week one, I went to Third Street Elementary School and interview Mrs. Kim about the school structure. I learned Third Street Elementary has been recognized as one of the greatest elementary schools by Los Angeles Magazine. What makes this school so special, is their school structure. School information is shared by the principal, teachers, students, and parents. The staff has great communication with the parents at Third Street Elementary School. Parents are involved in the school and work together to raise money to help support the school. Parents and teachers work together to provide the best education possible. Parents raise money to provide children with music and drama teachers, a state-of-the-art technology center and teacher, and an endless variety of supplemental activities. The teacher provides a warmth and welcoming atmosphere. The school is made of many ethnicities. During the second week, I learned about school culture. I learned that school culture effects the learning environment. If a school has a good school culture the students are more likely to be engaged and want to learn. In a toxic school culture, students are more likely to engage in problem behaviors. School culture is created by the staff, students, and the parents. The way they interact with each other is important. Staff is an important part of a school culture. The teacher development trust video goes over how to support staff. When a school prioritizes teacher development it increases students’ outcomes. When teachers feel supported they are more prepared to help students. Students feel supported. As a behavioral analyzes are role is to provide Schools 4 support to the teacher, and to follow their lead. We do not tell the teacher how to teach or interrupt the teacher when teaching. During the third week, we were asked to analyze how to develop a collaborative working relationship with others. By the end of the week we learned what communication style worked for us and what you might need to do in the future to better work with a myriad of personality types. Different communication style affects the way people communicate with each other. DiSC is a tool used to determine a person personality and behavior. There are four different behavioral types. The four different behavioral types are dominant, inspiring, supportive, and cautious. Understanding your own personality and behavior can help you adapt your behaviors with others. During week four we were asked to construct a plan for working with the stakeholders in implementing an Individualized Educational Plans (IEP). Below is the action plan. Action (in order of the actions) Examination of the problem(s) People Involved in the action Teacher, client, parents Support from the material discusse class That supports the action. Identifying and Programming fo Student Needs and Classroom Management and Organization Teacher, Administers, service client needs such as (School Psychologist, Identifying and Programming fo Development of an intervention plan Student Needs and Classroom Speech/ language therapist, Management and Organization to address the problem Occupational therapist, and behavioral analyze) Evaluation of effectiveness of the Parent, Teacher, Administer, School Identifying and Programming fo interventions and decisions on what to Psychologist, Speech/ language Student Needs and Classroom do next if the interventions are therapist, Occupational therapist, and Management and Organization ineffective behavioral analyze The problem behavior are examine and an intervention plan is create to address the problem behavior. Once the goals for the clients have been establish it is important to take data to show the effect the intervention has had on the client. If the client goal is to raise his hand without Schools 5 speaking out of turn, we would reinforce the client raising his and without talking. We would provide support to the client without interfering with the teacher teaching. When providing support to the teacher, we want to take her lead. When collaborating with the teacher and other staff member a behavioral technician respect how things are done and work together to best help the client. During an IEP the stakeholder are the client, the parent, teacher, and administers. The person providing services is the behavioral technician, school psychologist, speech/ language therapist, and occupational therapist. After a year of services another IEP meeting is held and the clients process is discussed and new goals are introduced.
