To all my special educator/school psychologist/social worker friends: read this book! Really great, practical tips and interventions.
Good information regarding these difficulties, but often requires outside help that may not be accessed for various reasons.
This book had a lot of strategies for working with students with behavior issues. It will be a book that I will refer to as needed in the future. It was easy to read.
This book is written by my friend Jessica. She helped me so much with challenging behaviors in the classroom. It will be published April 19, 2012. Check it out!
