Behavioral Prescripting by the Numbers: A Manual for Educators Who Work with Problem Students.
James, Richard; Warbington, Kathleen
This manual describes a systematic approach, behavioral prescripting, for dealing with student problem behaviors. Aspects of the behavioral prescripting process are described, including: (1) enlisting the support of parents and teachers; (2) deciding on the problem behaviors; (3) collecting baseline data; (4) building a reinforcement schedule; (5) contracting agreements between problem students, teachers, parents, and classmates; and (6) assessing behavior change. This manual also describes teacher training needs in terms of behavioral prescripting, with suggestions for training approaches and resources. Additionally, basic listening skills training and behavior management skills training for teachers are stressed. (RC)
