For over 40 years the James Stanfield Company has been producing award-winning programs to promote Social Competence and Transition Readiness in students with cognitive, learning and/or behavioral disabilities. Its President, Dr. James Stanfield, is a nationally recognized authority in Special Education and Instructional Design. He’s been a classroom teacher, directed federally funded research programs and was a Professor of Special Education before starting his own organization. In other words, unlike the vast majority of other educational publishers, Dr. Stanfield has been there. He knows how children learn and what teachers need to teach them.
Students will understand that it's a delusion (thinking error) to assume that how they, talk, and act at home will be acceptable in the workplace. Students will give examples of how Juan's appearance, talk, and behavior had to change.
Gin's form of grandiosity assumes that others, like her boyfriends, will want to do all unpleasant tasks for her and will offer constant adoration.
Students will understand why it's a mistake to expect the Boss and co-workers to relate to them as worshipful admirers.
Students will describe what Gin believes to be the essence of the Boss/Employee relationship (the boss is an admirer). Students will also give examples of why believing the boss is an admirer would result in unrealistic expectations for "special treatment" from the boss.
