Directive Teaching of Children with Learning and Behavioral Handicaps.
Stephens, Thomas M.
Designed for teachers and other professional school personnel, the text presents the characteristics of children with learning and behavioral handicaps accompanied with an illustrative case study. The three variables of teaching (instructional media, school environment, and student behavior) are described in terms of effective manipulation of such variables. The acquisition and utilization of significant student data are explored in areas of academic skills, perceptual ability, behavior, and potential reinforcement techniques. Learning principles and theories are described, and specific teaching strategies and methods for academic and social instruction are provided. Detailed procedures for evaluation of student performance are presented, followed by a glossary of related terms and phrases. (RD)
