Kaiser, Barbara, Rasminsky, Judy Sklar


Making full use of Barbara Kaiser's 25 years of experience as a child care director and teacher, this text presents information and strategies to deal with the challenging behavior that teachers find more and more often in their classrooms. Vignettes throughout the text featuring real children make these strategies come alive. Based on the 40-page NAEYC booklet on the same topic, Meeting the Challenge: Effective Strategies for Challenging Behavior in Early Childhood Environments (1999), this new text explores the subject matter and strategies in greater depth with more up-to-date information. Additional chapters on resilience, culture, the brain, self-reflection, working with families, and bullying make this text a more comprehensive and useful resource. In addition to two full chapters on preventing challenging behavior, three chapters provide specific strategies for responding to challenging behavior. Chapter 9, Guidance and Punishment, gives a balanced overview of traditional guidance strategies (e.g. positive reinforcement, consequences, and time-out). Chapter 10, The WEVAS Strategy, a new approach to challenging behavior that focuses on the teacher's response to the child, furnishes concrete, easy-to-use techniques. Chapter 11, Functional Assessment, presents a clear, concise overview of functional assessment, a strategy mandated by IDEA that views challenging behavior from the child's perspective. The appendices contain functional assessment charts and explanations of how to use them.Kaiser, Barbara is the author of 'Challenging Behavior in Young Children Understanding, Preventing, and Responding Effectively' with ISBN 9780205342266 and ISBN 0205342264.
