Abstract

In conclusion, we have found that an educational and behavioral approach has been most effective in correcting maladaptive behavior in children, and complete success is only limited by our own creativity. We cannot advocate behavior modification for all children because neither we nor our children should adapt to an ineffective educational system. Improvement in programming in both academic and social skills must be of primary emphasis in prevention. We must concentrate our best minds and personnel in the preschool and primary school years. As the child learns to accept the consequences of his behavior, the necessary social skills to meet his needs, and the basic information for decision making, he will be able to approach adulthood with reasonable assurance of success.
