Behavior Modification/Traditional Techniques for Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders
Mooney, Paul; Ryan, Joseph B.; Gunter, Philip L.; Denny, R. Kenton
Advances in Special Education (MS)
In addressing positive general education teaching practices for use with students with or at risk for emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD), the chapter emphasizes teacher behavior change research that has been informed by applied behavior analytic (ABA) principles. Its central theme is that general education teachers can access research informed by ABA in developing prosocial instructional and management practices. Highlighted teaching practices include fostering correct academic responses from students, increasing active student response, and using contingent praise with regularity. The chapter also discusses functional behavioral assessment, positive behavioral interventions and supports, and controversial behavior change issues surrounding seclusion and restraints and medication, topics related to teaching students with or at risk for EBD in general education settings. (Contains 1 figure.) [For complete volume, see ED540057.]
