A Critical Review and Discussion of Behavior Modification Techniques for Treating Individuals with Learning Disabilities.
Newman, Isadore; And Others
Reviewed are some of the most effective behavior modification techniques for use with learning disabled (LD) children. Compared are the medical, psychometric, and behavioral models of LD; and discussed are the criteria used for classifying LD. Principles of applying motivational techniques such as selecting an effective reinforcer are considered. An example of a successful behavior modification teaching program which increased on task time of LD students through use of teacher attention as a reinforcer is presented. Also examined are methodological considerations of the behavioral model including selection of research design and the application of statistical procedures such as the analysis of variance using multiple regression.
