  • Handbook of Evidence-Based Practices for Emotional and Behavioral Disorders

622 pages
ISBN: 9781462526161

This authoritative volume provides state-of-the-art practices for supporting the approximately 20% of today's K-12 students who have emotional and behavioural disorders (EBD) that hinder school success. Leading experts present evidence-based approaches to screening, progress monitoring, intervention, and instruction within a multi-tiered framework.

Coverage encompasses everything from early intervention and prevention to applications for high-risk adolescents. Exemplary programs are described for broad populations of EBD students as well as those with particular disorders, including autism spectrum disorders and externalising behaviour problems.

The book combines theory and research with practical information on how to select interventions and implement them with integrity.
