The William A. Wirt High School Behavior Modification Clinic. Technical Assistance Bulletin 36.
National School Resource Network, Washington, DC.
In 1977, a Behavior Modification Clinic was established at William A. Wirt High School in Gary (Indiana) as an alternative to suspending disruptive youth. The clinic operates with two programs--a remedial academic instruction program in five basic subjects, and a counseling component in which all students are involved. The results of the clinic have been positive. Since the beginning of the program, out-of-school suspensions have decreased, and the recidivism rate of assignments to the clinic has dropped. (Author)
