Guidance and Discipline Question

posted by .

Focusing on the person and their strengths and abilities is a way
adults and children can help a
child with ____________ adjust to
the classroom.
1. special needs
2. behavior problems

Wouldn't it be special needs?
I am confused, because my friend
says I am wrong. She says its
behavior problems.

One of the first things to do with a child with special needs is to do an inventory assessment: strengths and weaknesses. Then design a program to focus on the strengths.

Now for behavior problems, focus on the behavior. Reinforce the positive behavior.



Your question is difficult because children with behavior problems are also special needs kids. That said, the focus of the question seems to be on special needs kids with physical or learning problems, rather than behavioral problems.
