Presented in booklet and chart form is the Behavioral Characteristics Progression (BCP), part of the Santa Cruz Special Education Management Project, consisting of 2400 observable traits grouped into 50 behavioral strands. The BCP is seen to be a nonstandardized criterion referenced tool which replaces conventional age and disability labels with observed attainment on the progressive behavioral objectives. The reverse side of the chart details procedures for teacher use of the BCP which include preliminary preparation, observation and recording, determination of instructional objectives, and continued charting during instruction. The following behavioral strands are included: health, attendance/promptness, feeding/eating, drinking, toileting, grooming, dressing, undressing, nasal hygiene, oral hygiene, self-identification, sensory perception, auditory perception, visual motor, gross motor, pre-articulation, articulation, language comprehension, language development, listening, adaptive behaviors, impulse control, interpersonal relations, personal welfare, self-confidence, honesty, social speech, attention span, task completion, reading, practical math, spelling, reasoning, music and rhythms, art and crafts, prevocational skills, kitchen skills, homemaking skills, outdoor skills, sign language, fingerspelling, orientation, and mobility.
