Beckman, Kenneth R.
The discussion, addressed to teachers, enumerates and describes behavioral characteristics which are commonly attributed to the learning disabled child. Characteristics covered include hyperactivity, dis-inhibition, inability to handle frustration (catastrophic reaction), perseveration, distractibility or reaction to detail, intensity of response, rigidity (insistence on status quo), guilelessness, awkwardness, destructiveness, and social immaturity. Brief suggestions are made to the teacher for handling classroom behavior problems arising from these particular characteristics. (KW)
