Behavioral Programming in the Re-Education School.
Discussed briefly are techniques of behavior change used in behavioral programing for emotionally disturbed elementary school children with behavior problems. The author considers the child's ecology as a significant influence on the child's behavior, by which he means all the experiences and relationships that a child encounters in his educational environment. Ten behavioral assessment steps are described for use in attempting to extinguish already established inappropriate behaviors. After receiving an educational diagnosis, the child's academic and behavioral programs are mapped out. Both short-term and long-term goals are established for the child. Mentioned briefly are contingency contracting, the Premack principle in which the reward is adapted to the child, group activities, token economy, and time out.
