Additional Book Details

Reframing behaviors for competence, confidence, and successful outcomes



With dysregulation and neurodevelopmental diagnoses on the rise, classrooms are more diverse than ever. Despite efforts to support each student’s needs and sensitivities, educators are often left frustrated and unsupported when strategies for managing all kinds of behaviors, from anxiety to acting out, prove ineffective, short-lived, or even detrimental to the students’ and teachers’ happiness and progress.



Through a reflective lens, this book equips teachers and support staff to help all students thrive by identifying and fostering each teacher’s and child’s individual differences and unique strengths. Written in an accessible, conversational style, this book will help educators:



-  Build confidence in identifying and addressing behaviors in order to support student growth and brain development

-  Learn about an interdisciplinary approach that combines education, occupational therapy, and psychology to better understand and navigate brain-based regulation, relationships, and behaviors in the classroom 

-  Use relevant research, illustrations, and strategies for reflective and experiential moments

-  Discover strategies to facilitate co-regulation, establish positive classroom relationships, address sensory needs,                          communicate with parents, and practice self-care



This reflective, insightful book provides workable strategies to help all students, as well as those who care for them, feel more competent, confident, and successful.
