Behavioral Self-Control Strategies for Young Children
Barry, Leasha M.; Haraway, Dana L.
Journal of Early and Intensive Behavior Intervention, v2 n2 p79-90 Sum 2005
In this paper, self-control strategies are conceptualized as existing on two intersecting continuums of more or less individual control and increasing complexity depending on individual need. Behavioral self-control strategies for young children require external supports to assist children in learning the skills necessary to practice and implement the strategy. Therefore, self-control strategies for young children will tend to be more complex with increased external supports to encourage behavioral change. The component parts of behavioral self-control strategies are described and illustrated through examples. (Contains 3 figures.)
