Behavior Modification With Timothy Freeman, PhD, Child Psychologist Volume 1
Individuals with Angelman syndrome often exhibit considerable behavior problems, which can range anywhere from running away to self-mutilation. As with all children, behavior modification is an integral part of the education of AS individuals. Changing bad behavior is not just a matter of convenience; it is a crucial element in the process of gaining independence. Behavior modification techniques can facilitate the integration into a regular classroom, broaden the spectrum of social activities, or create a less stressful family life. They can help solve problems with toilet training, sleep, aggression and other attention-getting behavior, and even assist in the training of daily living skills.

Kate -
A Case Study in Behavior Modification Narrated by Timothy Freeman, PhD

This film details Dr. Freeman's work with Kate over the course of the years.
