Pro-Active Behavior Management.
McCormack, James E., Jr.
The paper outlines the basic tactics in pro-active behavior management, a behavior modification approach for use with severely handicapped students which reorders the staff/student relationship by focusing on positive interaction. Pro-active behavior management is noted to involve interruption of established behavior chains, environmental rearrangement, redirection, development of competing behaviors, and maximizing positive reinforcement. An example of the pro-active implementation sequence is given. (SBH)
