Packed with hands-on tools and grounded in the latest research, this important resource provides guidelines for designing, implementing, and evaluating a schoolwide primary prevention program. The authors' team-based, school-tested approach includes behavioral, academic, and social components that can be tailored to address any school's needs. Each chapter presents real-world examples alongside essential information about how to prevent the development of antisocial behavior in grades K-12. Special features include sample forms and checklists for use in planning, staff training, screening and assessment, positive behavior support, and progress monitoring. The book also offers general guidelines for identifying and supporting students who require more intensive intervention.
"This is a great resource for schools learning about, developing, or refining an integrated primary prevention program. The authors address many details that are not available elsewhere, and provide practical tools and examples. The organization of the book is logical, integrated, and coherent. The chapter previews and summaries are very effective, and the concluding chapter on frequently asked questions is terrific." - John Umbreit, Special Education Program, University of Arizona, USA "This book should be mandatory for all school psychologists, special education teachers, and administrators. I will definitely use this book in a master's-level course focused on academic and behavioral interventions. My students will benefit greatly from the step-by-step approach to starting schoolwide positive behavior support models at their sites." - Cara Richards, Special Education Program, Department of Advanced Studies in Education and Counseling, California State University, Long Beach, USA "More than ever before, educators are now called to provide services for children at risk for behavior problems. It is critical that teachers, administrators, and other education professionals, as well as school psychologists, have an understanding of how to apply evidence-based, schoolwide behavior support interventions. This excellent book provides knowledge and practical skills that educators need." - T. Chris Riley-Tillman, Director of Graduate Studies in School Psychology, East Carolina University, USA
