Review quote

"Using the best evidence from research and practice, this comprehensive book presents a wealth of information for managing challenging behavioral difficulties in schools. Readers learn how to systematically plan and deliver approaches that increase in intensity of support. The strategies are described in a step-by-step format, with consideration for different age groups of learners, so that both new and experienced teachers can immediately apply them in their classrooms. As a text, this book would be an excellent addition to any teacher education, educational administration, or school psychology training program. It will also be an extremely useful professional development resource." - Melody Tankersley, Special Education Program, Kent State University, Ohio, USA "No one knows the literature on challenging behavior better than Lane and her colleagues. This book translates that knowledge into practice in a way that teachers will benefit from tremendously. With a focus on both instructional and management variables associated with preventing and dealing with difficult behavior, the book provides concise, easy-to-follow explanations of interventions. It is a unique resource that preservice and practicing teachers will refer to often." - Timothy J. Landrum, Department of Special Education, University of Louisville, USAshow more
