Dealing Effectively with Non-Compliant Students.
Guidelines are offered for dealing with noncompliant behavior in severely handicapped students. Eight steps in developing interventions for such behaviors are listed, and three are dealt with in detail: defining noncompliance, establishing causes for non compliance, and providing a number of interventions for each cause. Noncompliance is viewed from the perspective of reinforcement. Causes are seen to include the seeking of attention, escape from demands, and boredom. The importance of identifying the type of noncompliance prior to intervention is emphasized, and suggestions are offered for ways to deal with attention seeking (such as using differential reinforcement of behavior), escape (including making the situation more enjoyable and teaching an acceptable way of not complying) and boredom (such as increasing difficulty and revising the program).
