From the Back Cover:

How does a school consultant successfully and effectively work with the greater school community, including students, teachers, administrators, professionals, and families? Collaborative Consultation in the Schools is simply the only text in the field to clearly, systematically, and definitely provide the skills for future and current practitioners alike to achieve successful collaboration. Packed with helpful exercises, case studies, and graphics, this text covers the most important and the most current issues for school consultants with in-depth research and study results.

 

New to this Edition:

  • An emphasis on collaborative consultation within a Response-to-Intervention model allows readers to become familiar with the major educational reform initiative that has significant implications for school-based consultation, including systems-change.
  • Discussion of intervention integrity (Chapter 3) teaches readers how to encourage and measure intervention integrity, an emerging critical issue in contemporary school consulting.  
  • Additional case studies allow the reader to examine and produce graphs, practice data-based decision making, and to test their ethical problem-solving skills at the end of each chapter.
  • A list of online resources directs the reader to websites that describe quality, empirically supported interventions as well as interactive programs that promote student learning.
  • A greater focus on technology in school consulting issues, such as social networking sites and phone applications, keeps students up-to-date on the latest changes in the field as they relate to the growing use of computers, mobile phones, and other innovations.
  • Added material on transition planning for youth with disabilities emphasizes students about this collaborative process that requires consultation with school staff, families and the individual student.

 

 

From the Back Cover:

Offering a genuine difference, this practical book treats school consultation as a collaborative, problem-solving endeavor. It covers the two primary theories of consultation—behavior and mental health—in detail, and summarizes several others. Using numerous actual examples, it gives readers a broad overview of the what, why, and how of school consultation. The hands-on experience of this author keeps the narrative focused, and imbues it with the common sense necessary to help special and general educators deal with the everyday challenges of at-risk, mainstreamed, and included pupils. Specific chapter topics discuss communication and interpersonal skills, and ethics and advocacy in school consultation. For special education teachers as well as school psychologists and counselors.
