PROJECT SED: Trail-blazing for Severely Disturbed Youngsters in a Public School.
Carter, Ronald D.; Poeschel, Susan M.
Described is a program to provide educational services for severely emotionally disturbed (autistic or childhood schizophrenic) children based on behavior modification principles. Both formal and informal tests of performance are given in the areas of preacademic and readiness tasks. Each child is individually tutored in language, pre-reading, pre-arithmetic, and self help skills. Parental reaction to the program has been positive. A sample of student growth in the 8 months of the program is that of a child who previously rocked incessantly, threw furniture, and screamed, but who now sits quietly, waits her turn, and plays cheerfully. The instructional staff have been involved in obtaining instructional materials, doing paperwork, and restricting the involvement of visitors. (DB)
