Stop the Blame Game: Teachers and Parents Working Together to Improve Outcomes for Students with Behavior Disorders
Davis, Melissa
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p48-59 Win 2014
Students with behavior disorders often require specific interventions to improve their behavioral outcomes. Common interventions to use with these students include teaching appropriate behaviors, focusing on positive behaviors, noting the start of behaviors and intervening early, and providing appropriate reinforcements. To enhance the effectiveness of these interventions, parent and teacher collaboration is necessary. These methods typically include the parent and teacher meeting to agree on a target behavior, discussion about what causes the inappropriate behaviors, and making an agreement on an intervention to use to change the behavior, with the purpose of improving the behavior at home and school. Communication should be maintained throughout the intervention process with follow-up meetings as necessary. In general, these interventions provide a new, promising avenue to improve the outcomes of students identified with behavior disorders.
