Questions and Directions Related to the Provision of Services to Preschool Children with Severe Behavior Disorders.
Hilton, Alan; Schmitz, Cathryne L.
Six issues are discussed concerning the provision of services to preschool children with severe behavior disorders, in order to initiate an examination of needs for policy, services, and training. The issues, which are presented in the form of questions, include: how to define the population of preschool children with severe behavior disorders, what are the needs of the population, how can practitioners best serve these students, what are valid intervention approaches, how can the students be tracked longitudinally, and what type of training and certification should be developed for those working with preschool children with severe behavior disorders. A call for action recommends that professionals in the field address the area of preschool children by holding conferences, creating inter-organizational task forces, and influencing the state licensure/certification process.
