Behavior Management and Socialization Techniques for Severely Emotionally Disturbed Children.
Newman, Rebecca
Described is a structured approach to managing behavior and increasing socialization skills of severely disturbed children in primary and adolescent classrooms. It is noted that manual signing accompanied by verbalization, gesture, and physical assisting is used to communicate behavioral expectations in the primary class; while in the adolescent classroom, the structure is reinforced through the use of a play money behavior modification program. Explained are such behavior changing techniques as positive reinforcement (verbal praise, food, and physical contact), overcorrection, positive reinforcement paired with punishment, "putting through" (physical assistance in performing desired tasks), and ignoring.
