Editorial Reviews

Review

School Success for Kids With Emotional and Behavioral Disorders is an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, and clinicians alike. This book documents the history of, the process for and the implementation of interventions for children with emotional and behavioral disorders in the school setting. As a clinician trained in the medical model of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, I especially found this book helpful in updating my own knowledge about the educational assessments, interventions and implementation processes available for these very challenging students. As a result, I have become a more informed and effective advocate for my patients. --Stuart R. Varon, M.D., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, The Johns Hopkins University of Medicine

Schools Success for Kids with Emotional & Behavioral Disorders provides practical guidance to parents and educators in strategies to support success for youth who demonstrate challenging behaviors. The book provides tools and tips in both understanding the many myths of this population, but clear strategies for how to provide a healthy environment for youth who struggle with their behaviors. The book is comprehensive, yet easily digested.

I had bought the ebook first, then needed a copy to show colleagues. As a school social worker helping students with extreme behaviors this book refreshed the ideas and offered ways to help other staff understand our students. My experience of 7years with an intense student population was different than the people comming straight out of grad school not having worked with our students. This book helped start conversation on how our students may need different supports than the typical students. Very helpful tool for teAchers admin and others working with emotionally and behaviorally challenged students.

This is probably the best thing I've read about behavior problems in education, whether the problems are attributed to "disorders" or not--not least because, title notwithstanding, it goes a long way towards saying that actually so-called disorders don't have to be understood as something being "wrong" with a kid so much as they can be seen as a kid's particular personality putting pressure on shortcomings in the kid's environment. And it does so without scapegoating schools *and* (rarely for books like this ime) while giving plenty of attention to kids who are not white and middle- to upper-middle class (including debunking some racist myths about difficult poor/brown kids).
