As the homeschooling mother of three boys with ADHD and emotional issues, I found this book to be very informative. It details everything from the classroom environment to rewards and consequences, field trips and sports, staying on task, and many of the behaviors you can expect to see from the behaviorally challenged child.

While written primarily for teachers, parents of children with behavior issues will find this book to be a treasury of information and coping techniques. Putting these ideas into practice both at home and in the classroom will help the child to feel secure that the adults in his or her life are working with the child to help them become more capable of handling day to day life and responsibilities.

I want to thank the author (Don) for writing this book. Although I am not a teacher, nor do I have youngsters, I am still in need of this knowledge. My daughter, now 27, is Bi-polar and she is expecting a child. My fear is that my grandchild may be born with emotional challenges as well. I did not have books like these 27 years ago so I am grateful for them now.

What I have learned will help me deal with both my daughter, as an adult, and my grandchild. I personally know that emotional disabilities can be passed down to generations so I want to be prepared.

Don has done a great job at explaining how to manage the aspects of emotionally challenged children. This is a must read for anyone.

Format: Paperback
I was impressed by the fact that the author is keenly aware of the behavior child's needs in the public school system. It is obvious that he has worked hard to be a teacher/guide his students need him to be.

He provides insight that should help anyone decide if being a "special needs" teacher is something they have the ability to do. Even though the behavior child is not necessarily one who has a learning disability, the author understands and conveys the message that the behavior child is special and cannot be treated as any normal student, who are void of emotional issues. At the same time, his discipline theory is strong and valid. He does not suggest coddling a child.

I highly recommend this book because I felt like the author was sitting down with me, one-on-one, to explain the facts about dealing with a behavior child in the public classroom, in a friendly, easy way.

This is one of the most informative books I have ever read regarding behavioral issues in children. The perfect tool for parents with children that have some form of emotional and physical disabilities, this book reviews common behavioral challenges that many of today's students and teachers face. Not only is this book extremely informative for the teacher and parent who cares for children in the classroom with behavioral issues, it also a wonderful learning tool for parents of normal children to gain further knowledge of day to day activities in their daily classroom surroundings. This book also shows you how to deal with childhood behavioral problems should they ever arise. A very thorough "How to" chocked full of information and guidance. Well written!

I am so glad I found this book! I tutor a young, behavior student and even though I observe in the classroom I really haven't had much formal training to help tutor while dealing with behavioral issues.

Just reading this book helped me with so many things I and my student have been struggling with the last few weeks. I'm excited for future sessions and I can't wait to try out some of the things I read today.

I highly recommend this book for anyone in the classroom with any student, there is a lesson in here for everyone. And even though I only tutor a single student at a time and not an entire classroom, it was very relevant and helpful.

Excellent work with new insights for teachers and parents alike. There is always a challenge in the classroom with each new group of students. I have been using some of the ideas presented here with much success. Thanks to the author for your thoughtful work and understanding.

Format: Paperback
Some children must learn the behaviors that are essential to a classroom setting before they can effectively learn anything else (like reading, writing, math, science, etc.). This book offers a brief and practical beginner's guide for teaching those behaviors.

If you work in a school district or home school setting that has left you to "fend for yourself" with emotionally disturbed or learning disabled students, this book outlines a basic, yet actionable process you can follow to get started. Among the topics covered are program structure, room setup, performance management steps, communication techniques, and classroom procedures - useful information for a reader who is new to the "behavior classroom" concept.

The book is honest and up-front about being experienced-based, rather than research-based, and does not suggest that it offers the "best" or "only" approach - just a workable strategy that is easy to understand and adopt.

(The book I received appears to be an advance release copy made available for review purposes, so my comments and rating pertain to that book's content only, not to various editing or style issues that I assume will be corrected prior to final publication.)
