Marie: I know that when a child has an IEP, there is also a team formed specifically for that child. I am wondering when the child’s teacher is not trained in ABA(applied behavior analysis) and the outside agency’s practice and philosophy are ABA driven, who has the last say? Example , student has unpleasant behavior that the teacher doe not like, he will yell at the child and also bench the child for recess. When the outside agency is working in the classroom and the child has an undesired or inappropriate behavior , they will try to identify the antecedent , redirect, and try to have the student get compliant and be praised and encouraged to continue with desired behavior. I am an aide and I see these as complete conflicts of interest. It sets the student up for inconsistency and rough days.
