This technical assistance manual is addressed to Oregon Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education personnel of all sorts and in all settings who provide services to young children with identified behavior disorders. While it lays a foundation for approaching any child with behavioral issues, its focus is on those preschool children who are eligible for early childhood special education services under the designation of emotional disturbance or developmental delay in the areas of social/emotional problems. The manual is divided into four sections. Section 1 discusses the special education process from identification to placement. Section 2 explains patterns of behavior, functional behavioral assessment and behavioral intervention plans, and documenting behaviors. The following section focuses on practical strategies for modifying behavior, including creating a behavioral intervention plan, practices that create a positive tone and promote healthy social-emotional functioning, ideas for what to do while developing a specific plan, time outs, situational interventions for four different behavioral patterns, and functional behavioral assessment. Specific strategies that work are also discussed, including verbal problem solving, bravo cards, social stories, scripts, and social skills groups. The last section discusses family and professional partnerships, supporting the parent, and problem solving. Each section includes extensive appendices.
