Behavior Management: Training Module.
Glen, Sally; McCoy, Youlonda
This publication, the third in a series of modules designed for paraprofessionals working with handicapped children, presents objectives and related activities for three competencies in behavior management. The first competency, on the definition and underlying concepts of behavior management, focuses on the application of behavior management principles to everyday life and learning situations. The second competency addresses the role of the paraprofessional in behavior management, with objectives centered on the importance of self-awareness, observation and recordkeeping. The final competency deals with specific behavior management techniques (ignoring, signal interference, proximity control, interest boosting, humor, hurdle lessons, restructuring, routine, values clarification, removal of seductive objects, antiseptic "bounce," and physical restraints.) Activities and test questions are identified for each of the module's objectives. (CL)
