Prescriptions for Children with Learning and Adjustment Problems.
Blanco, Ralph F.
A total of 1,170 psychoeducational prescriptions for various major learning and behavior problems of school children are presented. Intended to be of assistance to school, clinical, and educational psychologists and graduate students, the volume assumes a familiarity with childhood exceptionality and psychopathology. The prescriptions (psychoeducational recommendations) were compiled from those contributed by 146 school-related psychologists. Most of the treatments suggested are derived from psychodynamic, reinforcement, and need-motivation theories. Prescriptions contain behavioral management, curricular, and remedial suggestions for the following problem areas: aggression; antisocial and oppositional behavior; isolation, dominance, dependence, and sex; affective behavior; cognitive function (underachievement and thought disturbances); integrative behavior and other personality disturbances; mental retardation; low average intelligence; specific learning disabilities; and sensory handicaps and brain damage. Indicated for each prescription are intended age range, whether it is addressed to teacher or parent, and the contributing psychologist's rating of the prescription's effectiveness. (KW)
