Overview

Quickly find an in-the-moment solution!

Now more than ever, states are mandating that children with special needs be included in the general education classroom. As a result, all educational professionals, from teachers to administrators, need specific training on how to handle unusual behaviors.

This book builds on the success of the first one by expanding the focus from within the classroom to all areas of the school environment—in the hallways, cafeteria, auditorium, on the playground, and in therapy sessions during the school day. See a particular behavior? Look it up!

Director of special education Peter Gennaro, occupational therapist Beth Aune, and special needs mom and advocate Beth Burt collectively address and solve problematic behaviors relating to:

  • Leaving the classroom without permission
  • Lack of focus in whole group instruction
  • Out-of-seat behavior
  • In-seat behavior
  • Difficulty completing independent work
  • Meltdowns
  • Difficulty organizing materials
  • Classroom celebrations
  • Unsafe or inappropriate use of equipment
  • “Aggressive” behavior on the playground or during P.E.
  • Difficulty joining in group activities/isolating
  • Challenges with turn-taking
  • Being a poor sport
  • And many others!

    There is not much information in this book. The most valuable information in it is the sources hey cited at the end, there are many quality books listed there. This book was not even worth the $10 I soent on it.
