Teaching Self-Management to Elementary Students with Developmental Disabilities.
King-Sears, Margaret E.; Carpenter, Stephanie L.
Innovations: American Association on Mental Retardation, Research to Practice Series, n11 1997
This booklet was developed to help in the design and implementation of self-management systems for elementary-classroom students with developmental disabilities. Self-management components addressed in the booklet are self-monitoring, self-evaluation, and self-reinforcement. Chapters provide: (1) the definitions and rationale for teaching self-management techniques; (2) instructional principles that underlie the phases of designing and implementing self-management interventions, including supervising the use of self-management, charting students' performance of desired behavior, reinforcing students' appropriate use of self-management, altering self-management techniques when necessary, using combinations of behavior management techniques, and involving students in the development of self-management components; (3) phases for design and implementation, including selecting the behavior for self-management, preparing to teach self-management, teaching the student self-management using a 10-step process, and evaluating the student's performance; (4) three classroom scenarios in which teachers follow the instructional guidelines to implement self-management systems with their students; (5) ways to promote generalization of self-management techniques; and (6) a summary of the benefits and procedures for teaching self-management to students with developmental disabilities.
