Do you find yourself frustrated because of
that “one kid” you just can’t seem to reach?
Are your teachers feeling less effective because
of increasingly difficult student behaviors?
This is the book for you!
Yeah, But What About This Kid? will give teachers and administrators the strategies and structures they need to succeed with their most challenging and vulnerable students. It provides the missing pieces for both creating effective classroom and schoolwide disciple systems, as well as improving interventions and support for Tier 3 students and overwhelmed teachers.
What You will Find:

- How to communicate verbally and non-verbally a desire to support, rather than a desire to punish.
- How to de-escalate classroom confrontations and use consequences to teach behavioral lessons.
- How to add layers of schoolwide support to meet the unique emotional needs of Tier 3 students
- How to design and implement 1-on-1 interventions that affect realistic behavioral changes
- How to create whole staff buy-in for making productive discipline-based changes
- How to increase the effectiveness of schoolwide leadership
- How to roll out a multi-year plan for change
