Modifying Behavior: Suggestions for Teachers of the Handicapped.
Iowa Univ., Iowa City. Special Education Curriculum Development Center.
Behavior modification from the teacher's point of view is explored. Means of identifying pupils with special needs are discussed (observation, records, family contact, tests, resource personnel). Needs of children influencing their behavior are examined. Suggestions for working with behavior problems cover children who are aggressive, withdrawn, hyperkinetic, and physically impaired. Concepts of behavior modification are discussed in terms of operant conditioning, perscriptive and individual diagnosis, and teacher attitudes. Appendixes include behavioral clues for identification, sample health charts and records and testing measures, a summary chart of growth and development characteristics, and a list of children's books for various behavioral patterns.
