Oppositional Defiance Disorder, also known as ODD, affects between 1 and 16% of school-aged children in the United States according to Johns Hopkins Medicine. A child with ODD has great difficulty with the rigor and expectations in the school setting. Throughout this course, educators will learn strategies to get through to the ODD child. Educators will understand what the disorder is, how is can manifest itself, and what types of treatments there is available to schools and families. The course will focus on delivering lessons that overcome difficult behaviors, engage learners, and create environments for our ODD students to strive. Other objectives include learning about supportive technology and developing and implementing behavior plans.
It is important for all areas of instruction to meet the needs of your diverse student population such as ELA, Social Studies, Math, Science, LOTE, ESL, Special Education, Guidance Counselors, the Arts, and Physical Education, N-12 are appropriate for this course.
