Behavior Management through Self-Advocacy: A Strategy for Secondary Students with Learning Disabilities
Sebag, Ronen
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v42 n6 p22-29 Jul-Aug 2010
Implementing a behavior management model that focuses on student self-determination and self-advocacy can improve students' understanding of themselves and their strengths and weaknesses as well as support their ability to formulate strategies and goals for behavior improvement. Such a model promotes student buy-in and provides the student with behavior management tools, strategies, and experiences that could serve him or her beyond the classroom. At its core, the self-advocacy behavior management (SABM) model is student centered: It puts the student in charge of identifying the areas of conduct struggle; devising a strategy to successfully tackle the problem; and reflecting on success, progress, and areas in need of improvement. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
