Although there are several books published on behavioral problems, this is the first book that provides a variety of proven classroom strategies in a step-by-step format that educators can implement and incorporate into their classroom routine and curriculum. This is a helpful reference and instructional guide of over 100 interventions for managing and reducing behavior and learning problems in children and adolescents. Each intervention is written in an easy-to-follow format, which includes: the targeted behavior, age group, goal, materials needed, implementation steps, and troubleshooting ideas.
