Price: $24.95

"A thoroughly readable, clear, and practical approach to addressing children's problem behavior." —Edward Carr, Ph.D., Department of Psychology, State University of New York

"Breaking the cycle of children's difficult behavior is not easy. This book demystifies the process by offering practical guidelines based on solid information and research." Linda M. Bambara, Ed.D., Special Education Department, Lehigh University

Now the theory and research behind the positive behavior support (PBS) process — an approach already proven effective in schools and community programs — has been transformed into a practical, easy-to-use guide that’s perfect for sharing with parents. Developed by educators and families, this user-friendly handbook offers parents easy-to-follow guidelines for identifying the reasons for their children’s behavior and effectively intervening through three basic methods:

  • preventing problems

  • replacing behavior

  • managing consequences

The included exercises and worksheets help parents easily track their child's progress, and three illuminating chapter-long case studies walk parents through PBS and show them how this process can transform family life.
