More Behavior Solutions In and Beyond the Inclusive Classroom : A Must-Have for Teachers and Other Educational Professionals!
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 behaviours. 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, and auditorium, on the playground, and in therapy sessions during the school day. See a particular behaviour? 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 behaviours relating to: Leaving the classroom without permission Lack of focus in whole group instruction Out-of-seat behaviour In-seat behaviour Difficulty completing independent work Meltdowns Difficulty organising materials Classroom celebrations Unsafe or inappropriate use of equipment "Aggressive" behaviour on the playground or during PE Difficulty joining in group activities/isolating Challenges with turn-taking Being a poor sport And many others!
