SKU: 9781855034006 Categories: ,


Faced with deteriorating behaviour with a long list of possible causes, many teachers feel overwhelmed by the problem of challenging behaviour.

This book has been written to strengthen and inspire even the most battle-fatigued teacher.

It provides:

  • clear, practical advice for senior managers, teachers and teaching assistants;
  • definitions of troubled and troublesome behaviour; a helpful model of behaviour management;
  • and strategies for avoiding confrontation and dealing with it when it does arise.

Respected author Veronica Birkett writes with warmth and humour, bringing a wealth of classroom experience to this practical and accessible book.

Taking the approach that prevention is better than cure, advice is given on how to create a positive ethos, in which challenging behaviour is less likely to occur in the first place.

“How to Manage and Teach Children with Challenging Behaviour” is sure to become an indispensable friend and guide to any teacher experiencing the daily challenges of a modern classroom.

It includes the latest title in LDA’s category-bestselling “How To” series to tackle special needs in the school classroom.
