Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
A conceptual model is outlined and practical tools for addressing problem behavior are described here. The book shows how to develop and implement individual behavior support plans, giving particular attention to the organizational and team-based structures needed to effect change. Procedures are outlined for evaluating needs, transforming assessments into interventions, and meeting federal mandates. Reproducible forms are included. Crone teaches psychology and Horner teaches special education at the University of Oregon. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This indispensable volume presents an up-to-date conceptual model and practical tools for meeting the challenges of severe problem behavior in elementary and middle-school settings. The focus is on developing and implementing team-based support plans for the 1-5% of students who require intensive, individualized behavioral assessment and intervention. Outlined are field-tested procedures that enable the practitioner to evaluate student needs using functional behavioral assessment; transform assessment results into practical, function-based interventions; develop school-wide systems that support the assessment and intervention process; establish clear roles for leaders and members of behavior support teams; and work collaboratively with administrators, teachers, students, and parents. A much-needed resource and text, the book features illustrative case examples, figures, and charts. Also included are reproducible assessment instruments, parent and teacher forms, sample meeting agendas, and other useful materials.
Note: A less intensive, prevention-oriented intervention for students with moderate problem behavior is presented in the complementary volume, Responding to Problem Behavior in Schools.
A widely used practitioner guide and text, this book presents a blueprint for meeting the challenges of severe problem behavior in grades PreK-8. It shows how to provide effective behavior support for the 1-5% of students who require intensive, individualized intervention. Case examples illustrate step-by-step procedures for identifying student needs using functional behavioral assessment (FBA) and designing, implementing, and evaluating team-based behavior support plans (BSPs). The book also describes how to build school- and districtwide capacity to conduct FBA-BSPs. Reproducible forms and worksheets are included; purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
New to This Edition:
*Incorporates current FBA-BSP research and best practices.
*Chapters on developing districtwide capacity; FBA apps and software; applications for academic problems; and early childhood settings.
*Increased attention to FBA-BSP as a Tier III intervention within a multi-tiered framework.
See also the authors' less intensive intervention for moderate problem behavior: Responding to Problem Behavior in Schools, Second Edition: The Behavior Education Program. Also available: Dr. Hawken's training DVD, The Behavior Education Program: A Check-In, Check-Out Intervention for Students at Risk, which demonstrates the BEP in action.
