Guidelines and procedures for preventing and addressing challenging behavior in school setting

 

This comprehensive, practical book provides teachers and other educators, therapists, and administrators with guidelines and procedures for preventing and addressing challenging behavior in school settings. The authors take theoretical and often technical information and present it in an easily understood, applicable manner. The functional assessment and intervention model described in the book is a positive and proactive, team-based approach that has been used to prevent and remediate challenging behavior in school, community, and home settings. Readers learn how to conduct behavior assessment that helps them identify the variables that set the occasion for challenging behavior to occur, and that supports challenging behavior after it has occurred. Assessment information is then used to identify the function of challenging behavior and to develop positive interventions that address it, and that teach and support appropriate behaviors to replace challenging behavior.

 

Included are numerous examples of challenging behavior that occur in a variety of school settings and classroom activities, including examples of students with and without disabilities, students with a range of disabilities, students at varying ages and grade levels (preschool through high school), students in a variety of school settings and activities, and students who exhibit severe and disruptive behavior as well as frequent and infrequent challenging behavior.
