Teaching Strategies for EmotionallyDisabled Students : 

Teaching Strategies for EmotionallyDisabled Students Guidelines for class with students with SED: ·         Display appropriate authority ·         Explain class goals on 1st day and routine to be followed ·         Discuss goals often with each student, develop a contract what student must do to achieve goal, relate goals to the group goals ·         Keep simple class rules, set as few as possible to obtain order ·         Clearly explain consequences of not following the rules, or regulations and the rewards for following them as well ·         Allow students to be involved in the consequence process, post in the room or allow them to take part in making them. ·         Demonstrate consistency in enforcing rules and providing feedback. Applied Behavior Principles (ABA) ·         Target behaviors that need to change and define components of these behaviors ·         Observe, chart and analyze behaviors to change ·         Select and apply specific strategies to achieve behavior changes (i.e. start and stop signals, routines for transitions, techniques for forming groups, strategies for coping with disruptive behaviors) ·         Periodically evaluate progress toward changing an individual’s behaviors and revise their behavior change plan Bandura’s (1977) Self Efficacy Theory: ·         Allow individuals to feel safe by task analyzing and structuring activities to assure personal mastery ·         Promote vicarious feelings of mastery by watching and listening to models who look successful and appear to be having fun ·         Use personal persuasion by significant others ·         Provide counseling or psychotherapy that teaches cognitive control of anxiety and fear
