Eliminating Problem Behaviors with Positive Controls.
Stoi, Margaret
A teacher describes her efforts to deal with an 11-year-old severely emotionally impaired girl in a classroom with other acting out, aggressive students. The girl's behavior problems included breaking, tearing, spitting, swearing, running, and sexual aggression. A positive reinforcedment system was found to be primarily responsible for success in altering her behavior. Controls used were verbal and physical -- praise, hugs, pats, and food reinforcers. Restructuring the environment and the daily schedule was also found to work. (Author/CL)
