Special Tutoring Program with Maladjusted Children and Adolescents.
The paper describes a special education tutoring approach to maladjusted pupils in the Israeli Kibbutz. Following an overview of the Kibbutz way of life and the characteristics of maladjusted children, the paper examines ways in which the environment can be reorganized to minimize conflicts and help pupils grow up in a more cordial atmostphere. The tutoring program involved 40 Kibbutz children (10-16 years old) and was designed to reintegrate them into school and help them establish personal relationships with peers and adults. A member of the Kibbutz was designated as a tutor to help carry out individual programs and conduct periodic progress monitoring. The expansion of remedial activities under the tutor's control enables a broad treatment of problems to be carried out. Through individual adaptation and by the child's involvement in the work program, learning motivation can be increased and more proper behavior patterns can be formed. (CL)
