Schoolwide prevention models; lessons learned in elementary schools.

Ed. by Charles R. Greenwood et al.

Guilford Pr.


296 pages




Aimed at educators in today's school systems, this collection of essays discuss preventative strategies for dealing with students who have learning disabilities, behavioral problems or both. Edited by Greenwood (U. of Kansas), Kratochwill (U. of Wisconsin, Madison) and Clements (MGT of America, Inc.), these articles reflect current models of prevention that have been successful in school systems, and describe the step-by-step process of implementing these methods from scratch. Extensive case studies are provided to illustrate both the obstacles and successes in targeting reading and behavioral problems, and how universal screening, progress monitoring and data-based decisions can be practically applied.
