Child-Centered Educational Consultation To Assist Schools in Serving Students with Disabilities and Severe Behavior Problems in Integrated Settings: A Module on Effective Consultation.
Janney, Rachel; Meyer, Luanna
This module is designed to provide teachers, teacher trainers, and administrators with an introduction to consultation as a service to support students with disabilities and/or challenging behaviors in their home schools. The module provides a rationale for the use of consultation as a part of school programs, a review of research on its current usage and effectiveness, and some hypotheses about forces affecting the outcomes of consultation. The consultation model implemented is summarized, including steps in the consultation process, and a brief description of the intervention approach employed by project consultations is provided. A typology of consultees that may assist in providing more prescriptive consultation is given, and conclusions are drawn about types of problems effectively addressed by a child-centered consultation model. Includes 26 references. (PB)
