WHY won't he stay in his seat? WHY does she flap her hands? And WHAT should I do??

As inclusion becomes the norm in general education, teachers are faced with behaviours they have never seen before. Special needs educators may recognise the telltale symptom of a sensory need or a textbook-case of avoidance behaviour, but this is all new territory for the general-education crowd.

Written by Director of Special Education Peter Gennaro, occupational therapist Beth Aune, and special needs mom and advocate Beth Burt, this book illuminates possible causes of those mysterious behaviours, and more importantly, provides useful solutions.

Teachers can quickly look up an in-the-moment solution and learn about what the child is communicating, and why.

Problem behaviours that are addressed include:

  • Out-of-Seat Behaviours
  • Fidgeting
  • Hand-flapping
  • Covering Ears
  • Hiding or Running Away When Upset
  • Putting Head Down or "Shutting Down"
  • Difficulty with Class Work and Homework
  • Losing Materials and Missing Assignments
  • Poor Handwriting
  • Not Following Directions
  • Saying Rude or Inappropriate Things
  • Clothing Issues
  • Difficulty Making Decisions
  • Excessive Talking
  • Laughing Excessively or Being Silly
  • Little or No Eye Contact
  • Temper Outbursts
  • And many others!
