Journal of Special Education Podcasts

DR and the editors of the Journal of Special Education (JSE) have launched a collaboration to bring our members podcasts based on articles published in JSE.

1.  Commentary on Zirkel: Judicial Rulings Specific to FBAs orBIPs Under the IDEA and Corollary State Laws—An Update

In the first of these podcasts authors Dr. Mitchell Yell and Dr. Rob Horner discuss their JSE article, “Commentary on Zirkel: Judicial Rulings Specific to FBAs orBIPs Under the IDEA and Corollary State Laws—An Update”. Abstract:  The authors discuss the journal article by Perry Zirkel on legal action in regard to functional behavioral assessment (FBA) and behavior intervention plans (BIPs). They contend that the Zirkel article opens larger questions that will be central to ongoing discussions at the national, state, district, school, and family levels. Such issues include the role of legal standards to guide quality education, specifically special education; the response of families, communities, and school personnel to problem behaviors; and a focus on the development of a full set of accommodations that result in academic, social, and physical growth rather than just FBA and BIPs.(Journal of Special Education, April 17, 2017; p 57-59)
