Summary

School-Based Interventions for Students with Behavior Problems is a book about helping children and adolescents who engage in severe behaviors to positively succeed in the school setting. The emphasis of this book is on the prevention of behavior problems through structuring the instructional environment and teaching appropriate skills-and intervention to reduce problems with practical, proven, and positive procedures. This book is designed for educators faced with the daily challenge of instructing students with behavior problems, social skill deficits, and academic delays. It is designed for teachers as well as those who work with teachers and students; school administrators, counselors, special educators, and school psychologists. In searching for effective behavioral, social skill, and academic strategies, the authors have reviewed hundreds of research-validated studies to select techniques applicable to varied instructional settings within the school. The orientation and contents of this book represent the authors' experience and professional training in teaching, clinical work, and research involving students with behavior problems over the last 25 years.
