"This book provides educators with practical, simple step-by-step strategies to address serious problem behaviors, framing interventions within a tiered approach focused on prevention and positive approaches. Although the book primarily presents intervention strategies for students with significant emotional and behavioral problems, these interventions are applicable for children with and without a diagnosis of emotional behavior disorder and also can be used to target less severe behavior problems. This cost-efficient, proactive framework helps prevent the development of more severe behavioral issues and sets the stage for an assessment-based, proactive, and functional approach to addressing serious behavior problems. The book includes case stories, teacher reflections, forms, and ready-to-implement intervention approaches and strategies for both the classroom and school setting"-- Provided by publisher.
