Using Mediated Learning Experience Parameters To Change Children's Behavior: Techniques for Parents and Childcare Providers.
Falik, Louis H.
This paper describes the conceptual and activity focus of a training program for parents and childcare providers to help children develop their learning potential. The program thereby facilitates children's integration into society and enhancement of further learning propensities needed by them to adapt. The focus of the work is to create conditions for the enhancement of learning potential for all individuals, and is directed toward helping parents maximize the developmental interactions that are part of the typical and available life space they experience. It addresses the child with special needs for whom impairments of development caused by a wide variety of conditions require specially designed and implemented interventions to overcome barriers to development. The training model has been presented several times, in a variety of cultures (United States, Singapore, Indonesia); evaluation feedback indicates the efficacy of the model. The model explains that systematic, controlled research has not yet been done. (JDM)
