EFFECTIVENESS OF STRUCTURED TEACHING PROGRAMME ON KNOWLEDGE AND ATTITUDE REGARDING THE IDENTIFICATION AND MANAGEMENT OF BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS OF SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN (6-12 YEARS) AMONG MOTHERS IN ANAGAPUTHUR, CHENNAI
Introduction: The study was conducted to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge and attitude regarding the identification and management of behavioural problems of school age children among mothers. In India 8-9 % of children have conduct disorder, 3.2% have emotional disorders. Recent studies estimate that the prevalence of behavioural problems in preschool children has increased over the past two decade to more than 10%. Objective:.To assess and compare pretest and posttest level of knowledge of mothers and To correlate the knowledge with attitude and To associate the pre-test &post-test level of knowledge &attitude of mothers . Methodology:The evaluative approach was used. A one group pretest –posttest design (pre –experimental design) was used for this study. The study was conducted in anagaputhur .A sample of 60 includes mothers of school age children. Convenient sampling technique was used. The result of the study from satastical analysis, the mean score was 7.9 with the standard deviation of 3.2 and paired “t” test value of 19.7 which was highly significant at p <0.001 for the knowledge and for attitude the mean score was 18.2 with the standard deviation of 4.3 and paired “t”test value of 30.3 which was highly significant at p<0.001. So i rejected the null hypothesis stating there is no significant difference between post test knowledge with demographic variables. It showed that the overall knowledge had markedly increased after structured teaching programme this shows that the
structured teaching programme was effective.
