Classroom Intervention Guide Set Now Available!

Designed for use by teachers in the classroom, these easy-to-use, soft-cover workbooks are organized by the types of problems a student may be experiencing: the Workbook for Externalizing and School Problems and the Workbook for Internalizing and Adaptive Skill Problems. Each workbook presents a brief description of the problem area, examples of common behaviors associated with the problem, and a brief review of common causes of the problem. For each intervention strategy, a description of the strategy is provided, along with a list of the basic steps used in the strategy, an illustration of how the strategy can be used, and a detailed discussion on how to implement the strategy. Workbook appendices contain aides (worksheets, forms, classroom and small group lessons) for implementing the interventions.
