Editorial Reviews

Review

"This exceptional book answers the question of how to be effective with students who have serious behavior challenges. Written by some of the leading practical thinkers and problem solvers in the field, this volume is the best source of ideas and strategies currently available for dealing with issues related to problem behavior in educational settings. If you own it, you'll use it--many times. Graduate and undergraduate students in either general or special education programs could use this book as a text in courses on classroom management or social/behavioral assessment. In addition, the book would be very useful in inservice training for education personnel."--Edward Carr, PhD, Department of Psychology, State University of New York at Stony Brook

"This is the first of a new generation of behavior management textbooks that contextualizes essential features of the science of behavior within meaningful environments, including classroom, school, home, and community. The text lays out the essential elements of creating effective positive behavior support plans in an easy-to-understand, step-by-step fashion that is appropriate for both special and general educators. What distinguishes this text from others currently available is the way it consistently emphasizes the importance of simultaneously teaching social behavior and building supportive environments to promote the use of targeted social skills. A great introductory behavior management text for preservice teachers or companion text for advanced graduate coursework."--Tim Lewis, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Missouri

"This is a comprehensive handbook on the design of positive behavior supports. It is clearly written and filled with examples, and its content is linked to evidence-based strategies for addressing problem behavior. Practitioners will like this book because it coherently explains how to address problem behavior, and university instructors will like it because it does not oversimplify the complex process of designing positive behavior supports."--Martha E. Snell, PhD, Curry School of Education, University of Virginia


"This book does indeed contain virtually everything a novice practitioner might need in order to begin the process of successfully implementing behavior change and support in a school setting. The book is arranged in logical, sequential, coherent order....While I have used a number of texts in my undergraduate course on positive behavior supports, I plan to use this excellent book when I teach the course again. The book admirably fulfills the goals it was designed to meet. I believe it belongs in the library of every school psychologist (and teacher) who works with students who present behavior problems."--NASP Communiqué

I puchased this book which recommended by one of my colleague. I used it instantly with one of my students. It is thorough and more complete than any other books I have on the same topic. It provided how to determine behavioral functions. I give it a five star.

I bought this book as a first year school psychologist working in the high school setting. I was trained to conduct functional behavior assessments, but have rarely seen the need or opportunity to do so. However, now that I am working on my own, I have already encountered students with challenging behaviors that require significant assistance to maintain productivity in the classroom and remain safe while on campus.

As such, I began searching Amazon for some resources that would help me on my behavioral intervention journey. This book turned out to be wonderful. It provides a nice introduction to the process of Positive Behavior Support (PBS), team-building and collaboration processes, etc. This is good for individuals who may not have had as much formal training on PBS in school. More critically, I found extremely useful resources in the various citations related to assessment instruments, including functional assessment interviews for parents and students, data collection samples, and detailed considerations for examining the antecedent-behavior-consequence event cycle. Furthermore, there is guidance on what to do when data that has been collected doesn't appear to add up and what to do next.

Honestly, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who needs to be involved in student behavior intervention. While it is wonderful to have widespread, universal interventions, the fact remains that many schools still don't have Response to Intervention processes well-implemented yet. As such, school professionals need all the help they can get when it comes to research-based methods of altering environments and extinguishing undesirable behaviors in students and this book provides a wealth of information.
