Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    John has recently been in a fight with another student in school. The school's policy calls for suspension from school when a student is caught fighting. John is a student with mild mental retardation and as a special education student, his ARD Committee must first conduct a manifestation determination hearing (review) to determine which of the following?

    • A.

      The change in placement that would be the most appropriate.

    • B.

      Why his IEP wasn't able to address his behavior problems.

    • C.

      If his behavior was caused by his disability.

    • D.

      What the punishment should be for his disruptive behavior.

    Correct Answer
    C. If his behavior was caused by his disability.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "If his behavior was caused by his disability." In this scenario, John is a special education student with mild mental retardation. The manifestation determination hearing is conducted to determine whether his behavior, in this case, the fight, was a result of his disability. This is important because if his behavior is found to be a manifestation of his disability, the school cannot suspend him and must instead provide appropriate supports and interventions to address his behavior. This ensures that students with disabilities are not unfairly punished for behaviors that are a direct result of their disabilities.

    Suzy is a student with severe learning disabilities. Which of the following placements is most likely to be the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) for her?

    • A.

      A separate classroom where she can concentrate on academic skills.

    • B.

      Part of the day in regular education classes and the rest of the day in special education classes.

    • D.

      Spending all day in the regular classroom with age appropriate friends.

    Correct Answer
    C. A setting that can best meet her educational needs.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "A setting that can best meet her educational needs." This is because the concept of Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) aims to provide students with disabilities the opportunity to be educated alongside their non-disabled peers to the greatest extent possible. In Suzy's case, it is important to consider her individual educational needs and determine the most appropriate setting that can meet those needs while still providing opportunities for inclusion and social interaction with her peers.

    Correct Answer
    A. Review the IEP goals and objectives of all the special education students in the class.
    Explanation
    The best way for the paraprofessional to prepare for her duties is to review the IEP goals and objectives of all the special education students in the class. This will allow her to understand the specific needs and accommodations required for each student, enabling her to provide appropriate support and assistance. By familiarizing herself with the IEPs, she can effectively contribute to the students' educational progress and ensure that their individualized goals are being met.

      An adaptive behavior scale completed by the teacher.

    • D.

      A classroom observation.

    B. Interviews with her parents regarding her behavior, interests, etc.
    Explanation
    An ecological assessment is a comprehensive evaluation that takes into account multiple aspects of an individual's life, including their environment, relationships, and personal experiences. By conducting interviews with Sandra's parents, the LSSP aims to gather information about her behavior, interests, and other relevant factors that can help determine her need and eligibility for special education services. This approach allows for a holistic understanding of Sandra's needs and ensures that her educational plan is tailored to her specific circumstances.

  • 5. 

    Dylan is a student who will be three years old within a few weeks and receives services from the county intervention program. He has severe speech, and language delays and his parents are planning for him to attend the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) at the local school district. If Dylan's transition from the Early Childhood Intervention Program to PPCD is to be successful, what needs to take place?

    • A.

      There should be in-service training with all the current service providers and those in the PPCD program.

    • B.

      Additional staff will need to be added to the existing PPCD program.

    • C.

      There must be continuous communication and collaboration between the two programs.

    • D.

      Dylan should start out attending PPCD 2 days per week and the Early Childhood Intervention Program 3 days per week.

    Correct Answer
    C. There must be continuous communication and collaboration between the two programs.
    Explanation
    For Dylan's transition from the Early Childhood Intervention Program to PPCD to be successful, continuous communication and collaboration between the two programs is necessary. This ensures that information about Dylan's needs, progress, and goals is effectively shared between the service providers. It also allows for coordination of services and the implementation of consistent strategies to support Dylan's speech and language development. Without this communication and collaboration, there is a risk of fragmented care and a lack of continuity in Dylan's intervention, which could hinder his progress.

Progress monitoring involves regularly assessing and tracking the students' progress in reading skills. This allows Mrs. O'Day to identify any areas where the students are still struggling and make necessary adjustments to the interventions. It also helps her determine if the interventions are having a positive impact on the students' reading abilities over time. By using progress monitoring, Mrs. O'Day can ensure that the interventions are tailored to each student's needs and are helping them improve their reading skills.

By selecting interventions that are supported by research and have been validated through studies and evidence, Ms. Freeman can have confidence that these interventions will likely yield positive results for her struggling students. This approach ensures that she is using the most effective strategies and techniques to support their reading development.

    When considering a continuum of placement options and the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) for students, a student with Autism may have the most challenges in the following placement?

    • A.

      A physical education class with 80-90 students and free play for 20 minutes out of the 50-minute class.

    • B.

      A classroom setting with only 9 - 10 students.

    • C.

      An inclusion classroom that is very structured and the routine for daily activities are very consistent.

    • D.

      An adaptive physical education class with small groups of students.

    Correct Answer
    A. A physical education class with 80-90 students and free play for 20 minutes out of the 50-minute class.
    Explanation
    A student with Autism may have the most challenges in a physical education class with 80-90 students and free play for 20 minutes out of the 50-minute class. This placement option may be overwhelming for a student with Autism due to the large number of students and the unstructured nature of free play. Students with Autism often struggle with social interactions and may have difficulty navigating such a large group setting. Additionally, the lack of structure during free play may make it difficult for the student to understand and engage in the activities.

    • A.

      PL 49-241

    • B.

      TAKS/STAAR

    • D.

      Graduate Record Exam-GRE

    Cognitive-behavior training is the most suitable answer because it refers to a method that focuses on changing behavior by teaching individuals to think about their actions. This approach combines cognitive strategies, such as identifying and challenging negative thoughts, with behavioral techniques, such as practicing new skills and behaviors. It aims to help individuals understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and develop more positive and adaptive ways of thinking and behaving. Behavior modification, positive behavior supports, and planned ignoring of behaviors do not specifically encompass the cognitive aspect of this method.
