Madison School Model.
The Madison (Minneapolis, MN) school program provides intensive instructional and treatment services to students 12 to 16 years old with serious emotional and behavioral problems. The primary goal of the program is to aid individual students to develop sufficient coping skills and self based behavioral controls so they can successfully return to the mainstream programs as quickly as possible. Program components include a curriculum in the basic skill areas, five interrelated classrooms, individual and group counseling, a point system to reinforce appropriate behavior and provide feedback, behavioral contracts, other reinforcements such as time out, parent involvement, community agency coordination, and use of volunteers and practicum students. Appendixes contain a behavioral objective sequence recording form, a behavioral objective sequence outline, a treatment plan form, a point sheet, and a contract form. (SBH)
