Students with Emotional and Behavioral Disorders "Can" Manage Their Own Behavior
Patton, Beverly; Jolivette, Kristine; Ramsey, Michelle
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v39 n2 p14-21 Nov-Dec 2006
Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders (E/BD) often display one or more of the following characteristics: (1) an inability to learn that cannot be explained by intellectual, sensory, or health factors; (2) an inability to build or maintain satisfactory interpersonal relationships with peers or teachers; (3) inappropriate types of behavior or feelings under normal circumstances; (4) a general pervasive mood of unhappiness or depression; and (5) a tendency to develop physical symptoms or fears associated with personal or school problems. Teachers and providers should note that displaying one or more of these characteristics could lead to failure to achieve maximum academic and/or social potential. In this article, the authors illustrate how teachers can implement self-management in the classroom. For illustration, the authors use two hypothetical case studies based on classroom experiences: (1) a student with E/BD and academic challenges; and (2) a student with E/BD with social challenges. Procedures for implementing a successful self-management plan for students with E/BD are presented. (Contains 7 figures.)
