A Model for Assessment of Classroom Problems. Project ACTIONS.
Duncan, Dvenna; And Others
The conference paper examines issues in observing and programing for mainstreamed handicapped children. The underlying cause of the academic or behavioral deficit is usually ascribed to one of three categories: (1) lack of prerequisite skills; (2) lack of motivation; or (3) lack of physical ability to perform the behavior necessary to demonstrate mastery of the skill. Each of the categories is addressed in terms of identification and treatment. Attention is given to ways to reduce inappropriate behaviors in mainstreamed children and to replace the problem behaviors with more appropriate ones. Principles of behavior are reviewed, and three purposes of behaviors are considered: attention, avoidance of task, and self stimulation. Intervention suggestions are noted. (CL)
