Management of the Child with an Attention Disorder in the School Setting.
Book, Robert M.
This guide describes a management system for dealing with hyperactive, disruptive children within the classroom setting. The first step in the process involves a 45-minute classroom observation of the referred child by the psychologist. The psychologist collects frequency and duration baseline data on four classes of behavior: off task, talking out, out of seat, and other behaviors as determined by teacher input. The second step in the process involves psychological testing, which is undertaken to individualize the intervention program. The third step is psychosituational classroom intervention, involving several academic and counseling approaches. Based on the outcomes of the field test intervention, placement decisions are made from four action choices: no further intervention, in class support only, self-contained placement, or regular class placement with medication. After placement, maintenance observations are carried out once per month. Three case studies are included to illustrate application of the management system. (BL)
