Student Engagement Inclusion of Students with Emotional or Behavioral Disorders Student refuses to follow directions & uses inappropriate language. Student fights with others and is always defensive. Student is rarely on task and appears to have an inability to learn. Student is always said and doesn't speak or interact with others. Involve classmates in conflict-resolution instruction so all student have the opportunity to work closely together. Pair student with different students who can help them practice social skills. Develop a buddy system in implementing service learning so students can work together collaboratively. Encourage all students to affirm each others' strengths by giving positive feedback to each other. Box 7.6 Strategies For Teaching Students with Emotional or Behavioral Disorders Specifically identify the behavior which needs to be changed.

Create a baseline of the observed behavior.

Closely examine the information in the baseline and evaluate what has been observed and documented

Develop short and long term goals for the student. In the plan create a reward system to be used. Such as: give student a check mark for every 15 minutes behavior is appropriate. When the student receives 8 checks they may have 10 minutes of computer time.

Reevaluate the plan for effectiveness. Has the behavior reduced occurrence in a variety of settings?

Make modifications in the behavior plan to reinforce the desired outcome.
• Avoid escalating prompts such as shouting, touching, nagging, or cornering the student.
• Be aware that adults can unconsciously form and behaviorally express negative impressions of low-performing, uncooperative children. Try to monitor your impressions, keep them as neutral as possible, communicate a positive regard for the children, and give them the benefit of the doubt whenever possible.
• Consider the use of technology. Children with conduct disorder tend to work well on computers with active programs.
• Establish clear classroom rules. .
• Give the student options. Stay away from direct demands or statements such as: “You need to...” or “you must....”
• Make sure curriculum is at an appropriate level. When work is too hard, children become frustrated. When it is too easy, they become bored. Both reactions lead to problems in the classroom.
• Avoid power struggles and don’t argue.
• Remember that praise is important but needs to be sincere.
• Systematically teach social skills including anger management, conflict resolution strategies, and how to be assertive in an appropriate manner. For example, discuss strategies that the children may use to calm themselves when they feel their anger escalating. Do this when the children are calm. Early Childhood Students The Good Behavior Game
