Success Intervention Series: SUCCESS USING CONTINGENCIES TO CREATE EFFECTIVE SOCIAL SKILLS FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

The four intervention packages in the SUCCESS series have been researched extensively, and the programs are quite successful in reducing negative child behaviors in the school setting. CLASS (Contingencies for Learning Academic and Social Skills) is a classroom management program for elementary students with acting-out behavior. RECESS (Reprogramming Environmental Contingencies for Effective Social Skills) is a program that targets child “bullying” behavior on the playground. PEERS (Procedures for Establishing Effective Relationship Skills) is a program that targets elementary students with socially withdrawn behavior. Finally, PASS (Program for Academic Survival Skills) is a behavior management system for disruptive elementary classrooms. (Publisher: Educational Achievement Systems, Inc., Seattle, WA.
