Practical Ideas That Really work for Students with Disruptive, Defiant, or Difficult Behaviors, Second Edition is for educators who work with students with challenging behaviours. Like the other titles in the PITRW series, this easy-to-use resource consists of two main components: a practical ideas Manual and an Evaluation Form.
The Preschool to 9 years Manual has 35 practical intervention ideas, reproducible worksheets, examples, illustrations and tips designed for easy implementation. A CD-ROM with all of the reproducible forms is provided along with the manual. Most of the ideas in the second edition of this popular resource are new and the others have been revised and improved.
Educators can incorporate these practical ideas into their campus Response to Intervention framework. ideas for schoolwide, classwide, group and individual interventions are provided, along with references indicating their scientific research basis.
The complete kit includes everything educators need to provide high-quality, targeted interventions that meet RTI requirements for behaviour. In addition, educators who work with students already identified with emotional/behavioural disorders will find effective, easy-to-use ideas that can be integral to their Behaviour Intervention Plans (BIPS).
The Evaluation Form that is part of the kit has also been significantly improved. It consists of a Rating Scale, an ideas Matrix and an Intervention Plan. The Rating Scale is a criterion-referenced measure for evaluating behaviours that impact student learning.
The ideas Matrix provides a systematic way of linking the results of the Rating Scale to interventions. The Intervention Plan is a record-keeping tool used to document (1) the targeted skills, (2) a review of prior interventions, (3) new ideas selected for implementation and 4) the evaluation methods that will be used to track student progress. The plan is an excellent resource for campus student intervention teams to design and implement effective strategies for students’ behavioural and social success.
