There are more kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges in school classrooms than ever before. Whether you're a general or special education teacher, a guidance counselor or school psychologist, an administrator or superintendent, these kids present challenges that go well beyond the academic curriculum.
Challenging students often come with various labels attached: Asperger's disorder, bipolar disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), nonverbal learning disability. But these labels don't provide you with the information you need to truly understand a student's unique difficulties or help him overcome his challenges.
