By R. Schietz - January 20, 2008
This book is written in a very user-friendly format for educators. Over twenty mental health and learning disorders are described in this book including symptoms, behaviors, classroom strategies,and professional treatments. Based on current research and educational trends, this is the perfect book to bring to IEP and Child Study meetings for practical and concise interventions. Teachers and counselors will not only find plenty of ideas on how to motivate their students with learning and mental health disorders but also how to apply effective teaching strategies with all students. As a school counselor who spends a great deal of time meeting with teachers and parents, this book has spent very little time on my bookshelf. A great tool!
