Systems Analysis in Designing Toilet Training Procedures for Developmentally Disabled Persons.
Brooking, Emerson D.; Anderson, Dana M.
The use of systems analysis may help child developmental specialists improve the success rates of toilet training programs with developmentally disabled children. Such a systems analysis includes the sociocultural, family, and/or individual ecosystems of the individual. Two detailed case studies of mentally retarded elementary school age children illustrate systems concepts (morphogenesis, crises of transition, morphostasis, boundaries, enmeshment, and intervention). They also illustrate the importance of the socioculture, the family, and the individual as units of analysis and the application of such training procedures as overcorrection, positive practice, reinforcement, shaping, generalization, and maintenance.
