Student Management Techniques That Work.
Heady, James; Niewoehner, Melanie
Discussed is the application of behavior management techniques to problem behaviors of normal children in the home or school. Examples are given of such techniques as behavioral contracting between child and adult, reduction of undesirable behaviors through withdrawal of reinforcers ("bother sticks" and "temper tickets"), the use of a timer to speed behavior, behavior charting in the home through use of "yes/no graph paper", and self charting. The techniques are seen as appropriate for decreasing such behaviors as talking out in class, leaving soiled clothing on the floor, and acting out behavior. It is stressed that the major steps in establishing successful behavioral intervention are: (1) pin pointing very specifically the inappropriate behaviors; (2) finding effective reinforcers for the child; and (3) stating very clearly what must be accomplished before a reward is offered.
