'Rob Long's expertise is evident in every compartment of this 'toolbox'.
His finely honed approach to social, emotional and behavioural difficulties will be of equal use to leadership teams setting policy as to the classroom teacher requiring insight on challenging behaviour.
As with any toolbox, this book is a must to have to hand!' - Jan Baker - Primary HeadteacherRob Long's Intervention Toolbox is written for education practitioners who support young people with problem behaviours that act as barriers to their successful engagement with school.
Taking a multi-dimensional approach, the Toolbox provides solutions to deal with the multi-faceted nature of challenging behaviour.
There are 6 compartments to the Toolbox:- Physiological- Feelings- Behaviour- Cognitive- Social- Happiness. For each compartment there are a number of tools (interventions) that may be used depending on the age and level of understanding of the young person.
As all problem behaviours have many component parts, the Toolbox enables practitioners to employ several interventions to comprehensively tackle challenging behaviours. There are specific sections on both Asperger's Syndrome and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders with In Class Behaviour Plans for these learners, as well as an accompanying CD Rom including resources for putting strategies into practice.
The CD Rom also provides PowerPoint slides for training staff in using the Toolbox.
As an experienced professional, teacher and educational psychologist, Rob Long's strategies combine innovation with sound psychology and learning theories.
