Teaching Self-Control Procedures to Learning Disabled Youths.
Foster, Carol; And Others
The study involving two learning disabled (LD) seventh graders was designed to develop and evaluate a self instructional booklet that teaches adolescents to change their behaviors with minimal intervention from other individuals. The first part of the study examined whether LD Ss could learn the principles of self monitoring, goal establishment, and self administration of reinforcement by reading a self instructional booklet. The second part of the study analyzed the effect of each unit of the booklet on the students' application of the principles to their own behaviors. Application of the self control procedures produced inconsistent results both within and across Ss. Tables with statistical data are included, as are copies of the student opinion test and behavior checklist. (Author/SB)
