Reviews

"Presents the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports model, showing teachers how to create an intervention plan to modify challenging behaviors, along with examples of how to modify consequences. A top pick for teachers working with diverse classrooms." -- James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief "Dr. Riffel's materials are so practical that even new teachers can conduct a functional behavior assessment and implement a meaningful plan with ease. My students need strategies that work and do not take hours of learning to perfect. This book gives great examples and case studies that will guide my students to successfully mine that data for gold." -- Michelle Doty, Assistant Professor and Special Education Program Director "Dr. Laura Riffel has an incredible way of explaining behavior in a common sense way. Her approach to the material is scientific while based on many successfully improved situations in schools and clinics. Her ability to explain functions of behavior makes the subject clear for parents, teachers, administrators, and specialists. Real-life examples used throughout the book provide a deeper basis for understanding to the reader." -- Lisa Williams, Behavior Specialist "Dr. Riffel's book is loaded with practical information for addressing behavior issues. I cannot imagine a behavioral support team succeeding without mastering the concepts explained in her book. She helps you understand what sets a behavior in motion and how to become a behavior change agent. Dr. Riffel understands behavior and how to become successful with students. I highly recommend this book!" -- Kayla A. Bower, Executive Director "The true test of a teacher's character is not about managing problem behavior today in our classroom but how we, as educators, move towards modifying and shaping behaviors for individuals to achieve a better future. Laura Riffel's book provides us with the knowledge and insight to challenging behaviors and assists educators with a roadmap to success. A must read for all teachers!" -- Karen Barineau, Autism Specialist
