Ultimately, the goal of any thoughtful behavior plan is to assist students in making changes in their behavioral development so they can access educational opportunities and become independent learners. Using a straightforward team method, When Behavior Makes Learning Hard: Positive Steps for Changing Student Behavior showcases a model for school personnel to evaluate behavior and develop instructional behavior plans for students who exhibit challenging behaviors. The workbook outlines the development of each step, and presents tips and suggestions for defining and assessing each area. As teams follow these steps, student behaviors are modified through positive and instructional behavior plans. Examples of completed plans for elementary, middle, and high school students are included in the appendix. Behavior characteristics reflecting specific disability areas are also listed. CD with fillable PDF of forms included.
