Behavioral Intervention and Remediation Program for Identifying and Evaluating Children Who Exhibit Emotional and/or Behavioral Problems: A Consultative Team Approach.
Hoover, John J.
The author describes the Behavioral Intervention Program designed to serve children in the Gila County, Arizona public schools, who exhibit behavior and/or emotional problems. Section I outlines the program's philosophy, basic principles necessary to implement the program, program strengths and areas of concern, program procedures, and consultative team member responsibilities. Section II discusses the items directly related to the classification and placement of children in special education for the emotionally handicapped. It is explained that the program consists of four major components: (1) an intensive attempt at remediating behavioral/emotional problems on a counseling basis prior to classification and placement within special education; (2) early identification of children in the primary and intermediate grades to prevent possible emotional/behavioral problems from becoming serious enough to warrant special education; (3) a team approach providing ongoing consultation to the classroom teachers; and (4) Therapeutic Learning Resource Centers. Appended are sample forms. (SBH)
