Adaptive Behavior Program
The Navarro County AEP Adaptive Behavior (ABP) program is a highly structured classroom designed for students with emotional and behavioral difficulties. The purpose of the program is to help students learn appropriate school behaviors, which will enable them to be successful in less restrictive classroom settings (i.e. resource class or general education class). Academic instruction is also emphasized and is individualized according to the students behavioral and academic functioning levels in accordance with his/her Individual Education Plan. There is a low student-teacher ratio to ensure individual success. The program incorporates daily point sheets and a level system, which provide a structured and success-oriented behavior management system, allowing the student to assume more freedom and responsibility as he/she is able to accept them in an appropriate manner.
A special education student may be assigned to the ABP by the IEP committee, which will include a special education teacher or principal from the AEP and a home campus teacher familiar with the student’s needs if possible. The IEP meeting will be held within the suspension period.
All students are required to attend an intake session with a parent, prior to admission to ABP.
