Foundation for Behaviour Management: A Systems Approach
Andrews, Diane; Clarke, Trevor
Kairaranga, v6 n1 p35-38 2005
This article outlines the development and implementation of a project designed to help a school reflect on how well it has developed supportive behaviour management systems. The programme further encourages the school to implement more functional systems. When the local Group Special Education (GSE) office was offered an opportunity to develop some innovation projects, a proposal for looking at behaviour management as a school wide systems intervention was developed. The conceptual base was to focus on six targeted school systems believed to be the foundations for functional behaviour management, profile them for a school, report them in a way that has meaning and work with the school in improving functionality. The project has been used in seven schools in Southland and one in Canterbury. All the schools reported positive outcomes, and some schools made major advances in developing functional behaviour management systems.
