Focuses on the integrative/ecological approach to behavior management which provides a framework for combining various strategies into a cohesive implementation plan. Contains the most recent information on modifications in federal law passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton in 1997 regarding learners with disabilities. Includes skill-building projects in every chapter. Offers worksheets and forms which demonstrate how properly handled paperwork improves instruction.

From the Publisher:

Written in non-technical language, this text combines clearly- presented theoretical background with numerous case studies and actual examples of behavior management to create a clear, comprehensive examination of the field from four established points-of-view: Behavioral, psychodynamic, biophysical, and environmental. Its goal is to provide special educators--as well as paraprofessionals and parents--a thorough, practical guide for the application of behavior management techniques in special education classrooms, in regular classrooms, and at home.
