An Introduction to Managing Behavior Positively. Module 5.
Kron, Linda; And Others
This guide introduces behavior management strategies within the broader context of a comprehensive early intervention program, the CO-TEACH Model. It describes practices that teach desirable alternatives to child misbehavior and that avoid opportunities for inappropriate behavior to occur. An introductory section on positive behavior management discusses appropriate placement options, developmentally appropriate curriculum, social skills, and functional skills. Strategies to prevent misbehavior are described, including selection of appropriate materials, arrangement of the environment, and scheduling. Behavior management strategies such as modeling and "Tell, Show, Help, Praise" are described. Intervention strategies used when problems do happen are then discussed, including planned ignoring, restitution, reprimands, re-directing, stating the rules, spanking, time-out, contingent observation time-out, and instructional consistency. Appendices contain a daily schedule of preschool activities for students with disabilities and various administrative forms. (JDD)
