Classification of Behavior Disturbance among School-Age Students: Principles, Epidemiology and Syndromes.
Stott, D. H.
A discussion of the classification of behavior disturbance, the paper focuses on the results of behavior and ways to avoid uncontrolled inference and observer-interpretation. One hypothesis of maladjustment which is explored is a failure to think about the consequences of behavior and to act on impulse. An experimental revision of the Bristol Social Adjustment Guides, consisting of short descriptions of behavior that can be observed by a teacher in or about the classroom, is described. In a study of 2,527 students, two major dimensions appeared: under-reacting and over-reacting maladjustment with girls showing a preponderance of under-reacting and boys demonstrating more over-reacting. Relationships between health and coordination and maladjustment are considered, and appendixes present statistical data. (RJ)
