How To Teach Self-Management to People with Severe Disabilities. A Training Manual.
Koegel, Lynn Kern; And Others
This manual, written in workbook form, presents a self-management program for individuals with severe disabilities. The program is designed to facilitate treatment gains in multiple settings and in the absence of a treatment provider. The steps in the program include: (1) getting ready (define behaviors, measure behaviors, choose a reward, and select an initial goal); (2) teaching self-management (gather materials, identify the behavior, record the behavior, and reward self-management); (3) creating independence (increase the amount of time the student self-manages behavior, fade the student's reliance on prompts, increase the number of responses necessary for a reward, and fade the presence of the treatment provider); (4) teaching self-management in additional settings; and (5) troubleshooting. Three case histories illustrate implementation of the self-management program. (25 references) (JDD)
