School Success for Kids With Emotional and Behavioral Disorders gives parents and teachers of students with conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, mood disorders, or other emotional and behavioral disorders the strategies they need to help these kids overcome their struggles and find success in school. Based on the experiences of psychologists and educators working with kids with these disorders, this book provides help for children needing to control their emotional outbursts and strategies to teach kids to monitor, review, and change their behaviors. The chapters cover topics like managing the classroom, dealing with struggles with homework, choosing from options such as time out or restraint to control behavior, helping kids develop self-advocacy strategies and independence, and planning services and accommodations for these disorders. The book also includes multiple tools for parents and teachers to reproduce and use immediately to help their students with emotional and behavioral problems overcome their challenges.
