Book Reviews

"Highlighting the importance of relationships, the revised book provides new background information and additional research-based strategies to enable pre-service and in-service teachers to understand, prevent, and respond effectively to challenging behavior. The authors have widened the book’s scope to make this edition as useful to primary school teachers as it is to preschool and child care educators, furnishing numerous practical, indispensable tips for responding to children’s needs and helping them know what’s expected. The text stresses that every child has some kind of special need, especially children with challenging behavior, and prevention is the best "intervention." Pearson Highered
