  • The Students and the Problem

  • A Model for Delinquency Prevention: Positive Behavior Support

  • Examples


Labels for youth who manifest patterns of antisocial behavior
Labels for youth who manifest patterns of antisocial behavior

  • Socially maladjusted (exclusion/illogical)

  • Juvenile delinquent (legal term/adjudicated)

  • Juvenile offender (age of majority/committed a legal or status offense)

    These labels are not educationally relevant

  • Do not relate to the characteristics or needs of the individuals


Risk factors
Risk Factors behavior

  • Lax or inconsistent parental discipline

  • Coercive family interactions

  • Physical abuse

  • Substance abuse (self or family)

  • Living in a high crime community

  • Criminal or delinquent relatives or peers

  • Ethnic minority status

  • Aggressive, antisocial behavior

  • Difficulties in school

  • School failure (including educational disabilities)

  • Poverty

  • Broken home

  • Inadequate parental supervision


Where do you find juvenile offenders
Where do you find behaviorjuvenile offenders?

  • General and special education classrooms

  • Day treatment programs

  • Detention or correctional facilities

How do schools respond to student behavior problems
How do Schools Respond to Student Behavior Problems? behavior

  • A suburban high school with 1400 pupils reported over 2000 office referrals from Sept. to Feb. of one school year

  • In 1998-99, 74,565 suspensions and 3,603 expulsions were reported in Kentucky schools

    ZERO TOLERANCE FOR UNDESIRED BEHAVIOR!


Student Interactions behavior

with the School

Students who exhibit challenging behaviors have:

  • higher rates of negative interactions with school personnel regardless of their behavior

  • higher rates of punitive consequences than their peers

    this tends to make behaviors worse

  • lower rates academic engaged time with teacherperpetuates cycle of problem behavior

(Wehby et al. 1996; Shores et al. 1996)


Ineffective Interventions behavior

800

Reviews of over studies involving children with the most challenging behaviors(Gottfredson, 1997; Lipsky, 1996) indicate

the smallest intervention effect-sizes for:

  • Counselingsending problem students to talk to the counselor

  • Psychotherapysending problem students to talk with psychotherapists

  • Punishmentreacting to behavior without facilitating success


Long term predictable failure
Long-Term Predictable Failure behavior

  • Students with a history of chronic and pervasive behavioral problems and associated academic deficits are more likely to go to jail than to graduate from high school

  • Three years after leaving school, 70% of antisocial youth have been arrested (Walker, Colvin, & Ramsey, 1995)

  • 82% of all crimes are committed by people who have dropped out of school (APA Commission on Youth Violence, 1993)

  • A Model for Prevention: PBS


Prevention of juvenile delinquency
Prevention of behaviorJuvenile Delinquency

  • Primary Prevention

    • Prevent initial offending

  • Secondary Prevention

    • Prevent re-offending

  • Tertiary Prevention

    • Ameliorate effects of persistent offending


Positive behavior support
Positive Behavior + Support = behavior

  • Positive behavior—goal is for students to develop a repertoire of appropriate skills that enable them to participate successfully in a broad range of family, school, and community settings.

  • Support—a continuum of strategies provided at the appropriate level of personalization, given the strengths, needs, and preferences of the student and family.


Positive behavior support1
Positive Behavior Support behavior

  • A broad range of systemic and individualized strategies for achieving important social and learning outcomes while preventing problem behavior

  • An integration of (a) valued outcomes, (b) the science of human behavior, (c) validated procedures, and (d) systems change to enhance quality of life and reduce problem behavior

Universal Interventions: behaviorPrimary Prevention

  • Elements

    Rules

    • agreed upon by team - willing/able to enforce

    • posted, brief, positively stated

      Routines

    • avoid problem contexts, times, groupings, etc.

      consistent

      Arrangements

    • clear physical boundaries

    • supervision of all areas

In This Section:

  • Prevention of juvenile offending

  • Positive Behavioral Support

  • Primary/Universal

  • Secondary/Targeted

  • Tertiary/Intensive

    Now:

  • Examples


Example teaching behavior

Hands and feet to self behavior or

Respect others

2+2 = 4

Behavior: Peer Relations

Academic Skill: Addition

EXAMPLE Teaching Behavior


Example teachable expectations
EXAMPLE behaviorTeachable Expectations

1. Respect Yourself-in the classroom (do your best) -on the playground (follow safety rules)

2. Respect Others-in the classroom (raise your hand to speak) -in the stairway (single file line)

3. Respect Property-in the classroom (ask before borrowing) -in the lunchroom (pick up your mess)


Example ky kids schools project
Example: behaviorKY KIDS Schools Project

  • 66% reduction in office referrals

  • 64% reduction in suspensions and expulsions


Example harrison school wide objectives
EXAMPLE behaviorHarrison School-Wide Objectives

  • By the end of the year, number of referrals to SAFE will be reduced by at least 30% across all students

  • By the end of the year, number of suspensions will be reduced by at least 30% across all students and minority students

  • By the end of the year, reading scores will increase across each grade and across the school
