Since 1980, Behavior Management: A Practical Approach for Educators has provided educators, families, and paraprofessionals with a user-friendly, readable, practical guide for applying behavior management techniques that fosters a productive, task-oriented, educational environment for all students. Blending theory with practical “how to” strategies and multiple examples drawn from school, community, and family environments, the book illustrates the field of behavior management from four perspectives—behavioral, psychodynamic, biobehavioral, and environmental—in a straightforward, jargon-free writing style, presenting a wide range of interventions.

The ninth edition continues this tradition of excellence by including:

  • A new chapter on functional behavioral assessment (Chapter 4)

  • Current information relating to the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) which clearly outlines teacher accountability

  • Information on the role context plays in behavior, and how parents and professionals can partner to foster positive behavior

  • More pedagogical tools such as chapter objectives and summaries, key terms, skill-building performance activities, and relevant websites in each chapter as well as chapter opening vignettes taken from the classroom that exemplify the concepts being discussed
