Assn/Supervision & Curric. Dev.
Author Benson has 35 years of experience teaching in elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as undergraduate and graduate programs. Here, he offers 13 chapter-length profiles of real-life elementary through high school students with learning disabilities and/or emotional and behavioral challenges. Emphasizing the importance of meeting students where they are, he offers guidelines on classroom techniques and school-wide policies for dealing with issues such as concentration and attention problems, self-destructive behavior, substance abuse, and perfectionism. Chapters end with recommendations for dealing with students one-on-one, recommendations for the school team, and recommendations for administrators. The book includes sample forms. It will be useful to teachers, administrators, school counselors, social workers, and occupational therapists.
