Interventions for Academic and Behavior Problems II:
Preventive and Remedial Approaches
Mark R. Shinn
Hill M. Walker
Knowing what works is half the battle.
Serving the needs of students with academic and
behavior problems is a major challenge for schools today. Increasingly pervasive
issues such as violence, delinquency, illiteracy, and substance abuse may seem
daunting, but no youngster is beyond help. Knowing what strategies work and
how to implement them can help shift the balance between the risk and protective
factors that shape a child's ability to thrive.
As the successor to one of NASP's most popular
publications, Interventions II offers the latest in evidence-based measures
that have proven to create safer, more effective schools. The book emphasizes
the interwoven nature of violence and academic underachievement, the importance
of prevention and early intervention, the need to integrate intervention and
remediation services in a seamless delivery system, and the enormous protective
benefits of school success in all areas of a child's life.
