Summary

Bringing together leading authorities, this concise, state-of-the-science Handbookdelves into all aspects of problem solving-based school psychology practice. Thirty-four focused chapters present data-based methods for assessment, analysis, intervention, and evaluation, with special attention given to working in a response-to-intervention framework. Tools and guidelines are provided for promoting success in key academic domains: reading, writing, and math. Social-emotional and behavioral skills are thoroughly addressed in chapters on self-management interventions, peer and family support, cognitive-behavioral interventions, medication use, and more. This accessible work is an invaluable reference for practitioners and an ideal resource for school psychology training programs.
