Written by noted behavior specialists Kaye L. Otten and Jodie L. Tuttle, this practical resource is filled with useful guidelines, ready-to-use forms and worksheets, and teacher-tested tips.
This comprehensive and easy-to-use guide gives educators the information and confidence they need to create and implement an effective classroom-wide behavior management program and:

Develop engaging lessons and activities that support and promote students' positive behavior
Help children learn to self-regulate and manage their own emotions and anger
Work productively and collaboratively with parents of behavior-challenged students
Partner successfully with fellow educators, school counselors, and administrators to solve behavior problems in the classroom
This much-needed book outlines an efficient and effective intervention program that is based on research-backed approaches rooted in Positive Behavior Support (PBS) and Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA), the gold standards for classroom behavior management.
Praise for How to Reach and Teach Children with Challenging Behavior
"This book provides a comprehensive framework for understanding and addressing problem behavior in schools. Otten and Tuttle have translated complex evidence-based assessment and intervention strategies into clear and easy-to-follow steps, and offer an abundance of examples drawn from their many years of experience. This will serve as an excellent resource for special educators, behavioral consultants, and teacher assistance teams as they work toward building comprehensive positive behavior support plans for children and youth."
Tim Lewis, Ph.D., co-director, Office of Special Education Programs Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports
"There is a compelling need for practical and teacher-friendly books on implementing evidence-based management and related support programs for challenging learners. Otten and Tuttle have written an easy-to-read resource built on a foundation of scientifically-supported methodologies. That they base much of their work on decades of practical experience with children and youth only adds to the appeal. This is a book that general and special educators alike will find very valuable."
Richard L. Simpson, Ed.D., professor of Special Education, University of Kansas
