Editorial Reviews

Roxie Ahlbrecht
“I love the way the book addresses specific behaviors and classroom situations. The format is consistent throughout the text, which makes it easy to find information on a specific topic, skill, or content area.”
Holly Ishman
"Provides research-based strategies that educators can immediately put into practice to meet their students' unique learning needs. The authors have given us an invaluable tool for success in today's increasingly diverse classrooms and changing educational contexts. "
Ruth Devlin
"An in-depth, effectively organized resource guide for teachers at all grade levels, putting meaningful, practical strategies and activities just a page-turn away. Filled with the voices of teachers and students, this book won’t have time to gather dust on the shelves of teachers concerned with student success in inclusive classrooms and in today’s educational climate. "
Peggy King-Sears
"When teachers are reaching for solutions, they should reach for this book. Positive and proactive tactics to deal with students' problematic behaviors are provided, and the range of instructional tactics enables teachers to be more responsive to students' learning needs. "
