MODIFICATION OF A FIRST GRADER'S ATTENDING BEHAVIOR IN COUNSELING AND IN THE CLASSROOM.
KENNEDY, DANIEL A.; THOMPSON, INA
A REINFORCEMENT TECHNIQUE IN COUNSELING WAS USED TO MODIFY A FIRST GRADER'S ATTENDING BEHAVIOR. PRE AND POST MEASUREMENTS WERE MADE AND CUMULATIVE RECORDS WERE KEPT OF THE ATTENDING TIME IN COUNSELING SESSIONS AND IN ARITHMETIC LESSONS, AND A RECORD WAS KEPT OF COMPLETION VERSUS NON-COMPLETION OF ARITHMETIC ASSIGNMENTS. THE ASSESSMENTS MADE IN REGARD TO THE ARITHMETIC LESSONS ENABLED AN INVESTIGATION OF TRANSFER EFFECTS FROM COUNSELING TO THE ACADEMIC AREA. AN INVESTIGATION OF TRANSFER EFFECTS WAS ALSO INFORMALLY MADE RELATIVE TO OTHER SCHOOL SITUATIONS. RESULTS SHOWED INCREASED ATTENDING BEHAVIOR IN COUNSELING AND IN THE CLASSROOM, AND A MARKED IMPROVEMENT IN COMPLETION OF ASSIGNMENTS, AND WERE INTERPRETED AS SUPPORTING THE USE OF A BEHAVIORAL APPROACH IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELING.
