All children are challenging to some extent, but some are more challenging than others.
Students with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (SEBD) can be tough to support and teach. This pocketbook helps you to do just that.
It focuses on three particular behaviour disorders:
- ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
- CD (Conduct Disorder)
- ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder)
Fintan O’Regan, an internationally renowned expert on ADHD, explains why some children are prone to developing a can’t learn, won’t learn or don’t care attitude. He devotes individual chapters to each behaviour pattern and uses Vicki, Liam and Darren to illustrate typical characteristics.
Practical classroom strategies include lesson scenarios, with example dialogues showing how different teacher responses can lead to different outcomes.
Whether you’re looking for explanations, tips, ideas, or strategies (or maybe just reassurance and support) this book fits the bill.
“This is an excellent book that demystifies some of the most challenging behaviours we face in our schools. In a short time it says a lot, and provides genuine strategies for real situations.”
– Gavin Davies, Assistant Headteacher, Rossett School, Harrogate
“Any teacher who has ‘difficult’ young people in their classroom should read this book. It’s a problem solver.”
– Pat Porter, SENCO, Salesian College
“This ‘little’ book is like Dr Who’s Tardis in that the more you read it the bigger it becomes! Page upon page of sensible solutions, advice, information and facts until you believe that it must be three times the size.”
– Judith Monk, Editor, ADHD news
This book is also available as part of the 12 Teachers’ Pocketbooks – The Special Needs Collection Value Set!
