Severe social, emotional, and behavioural challenges can be major obstacles to your students’ academic success. Break down those barriers with the research-based interventions in this book, your guide to addressing serious problem behaviours in K-12 classrooms. Aligned with recommended practices for schoolwide positive behaviour supports (SWPBS), this book presents a highly effective tiered approach that helps you develop school- and class-wide interventions and match behaviour interventions to each student’s needs. Developed by trusted PBS experts and packed with concrete strategies, this essential resource will prepare teachers to prevent and reduce severe behaviour problems, improve students’ social interactions, and increase academic engagement. A must for both preservice and in-service educators!
