The Effectiveness of Academic Planning as a Means of Control with Emotionally Handicapped Children.
Kaldor, Kay
Effective academic planning which considers the child's behaviors and skills can be used to manage the inappropriate behaviors of emotionally handicapped children. Academic planning is especially effective when used in combination with behavioral management techniques. Using the child's behavior to determine appropriate tasks and to determine the sequencing of tasks can work (along with positive behavioral techniques) to eliminate inappropriate behaviors and establish more appropriate ones. It is also important to develop plans that are skill oriented and provide varied materials which consider the child's needs. Modification of commercial materials often makes them more acceptable for this population. By using all of these techniques simultaneously emotionally handicapped children make significant progress both academically and behaviorally, and self confidence is increased. (Author/PHR)
