Publisher's Summary

Why won't he stay in his seat? Why does she flap her hands? And what should I do? As inclusion becomes the norm in general education, teachers are faced with behaviors they have never seen before. Special needs educators may recognize the telltale symptom of a sensory need or a textbook-case of an avoidance behavior, but this is all new territory for the general crowd! Written by Director of Special Education Peter Gennaro, occupational therapist Beth Aune, and special needs mom and advocate Beth Burt, this book illuminates possible causes of those mysterious behaviors, and more importantly, provides solutions! Teachers can quickly look up an in-the-moment solution and learn about what the child is communicating, and why.

The authors collaboratively address problem behaviors such as:

  • Out-of-seat behaviors
  • Fidgeting
  • Hand-flapping
  • Covering ears
  • Hiding or running away when upset
  • Putting head down or shutting down
  • Difficulty with class work and homework
  • Losing materials and missing assignments
  • Poor handwriting
  • Not following directions
  • Saying rude or inappropriate things
  • Clothing issues
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Excessive talking
  • Laughing excessively or being silly
  • Little or no eye contact
  • Temper outbursts
  • And many others!

Teachers, it's possible to accommodate learning differences and sustain a positive learning environment for all students. This book is a must-have for every inclusive classroom!

I just couldn't.

Upon listening to the first chapter I came to the impression that these so called "Behavior Solutions" are far more focused on keeping the child from being "distracting" to others. One example being, if the child is flapping their arms in the lunch line simply place them at the end. REALLY! Not only is this "solution" further isolating the child it is also keeping them in that noisy, crowded, smelly place (which is probably why they started flapping their hands in the first place) longer than necessary. I'm sorry but I just couldn't continue listening!

Very interesting

I found this book interesting and helped with solutions to a few problems. I didn't find the naraters voice very easy to listen too but that maybe to do with her being American and I'm English! different accents etc. still pretty good though.

Excellent, Quick and Easy to Find Information.

Excellent resource for access to different solutions for varied challenging behaviors. Explains both the purpose of the behavior and suggestions or hints for troubleshooting which combes the needs of the student, classroom peers and the teacher. Decisive with easy to find information.
