Teaching Adaptive Coping Behavior--Theory Translated into Action.
The Coping Inventory, a criterion referenced scaled observation instrument used to assess adaptive coping behavior in handicapped children, is described. The adaptive behavior summaries of two children, a 5 year old in a special education class and a 15 year old handicapped high school student, are used to show how the Coping Inventory results are translated for classroom use. The research on which the instrument is based is reported. Five tables provide such information as a comparison of coping inventory scores of handicapped and nonhandicapped children, interobserver reliability coefficients for scoring the Coping Inventory, and coping behaviors that most differentiate preschool handicapped children from nonhandicapped children.
