Product description


(...) would be a great introduction for students working with children who have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. It is well written and has up to date research throughout. Author: Play for Life

The second updated edition... provides updated research and information perfect for health and education holdings, and considers why communications and behavior difficulties so often occur together. It analyzes mental health and social conditions alike, demonstrating that improving communication skills can lead to better outcomes, and that speech and language therapy that can help is often missing for this group.... A "must" for any collection looking at physical and mental health connections in kids. Author: The Midwest Book Review

this is an excellent book which draws together the fields of language/communication and socio-emotional development, recognising that no single professional group has all the answers to the problems faced by children with SEBD. As such, it appeals to the disciplines of mental health, speech and language therapy and education, emphasising the need for professional co-working. The book is well worth reading cover to cover, although it would also be useful to dip into specific chapters. Author: NAPLIC Matters

The ideas suggested are practical and involve reflecting on accepted practice rather than programme based... a useful resource for educational professionals working with pupils with emotional, behavioural and communication difficulties. Author: SNIP

One of the outstanding features of this book is its ability to present a robust level of specialist detail underpinned by abundant, current research in a very straightforward, non-technical way... it offers very practical advice for assessment and intervention, identifying exactly which language skills are priority for EBD.

There is something for everyone here, from a beginner to an experienced practitioner, an academic, a parent or a front-line worker.

Author: Afasic News

The chapter about the implications around lack of diagnosis is a fascinating but terrifying read... This chapter should be required reading on the NPQH scheme... This may lead to greater understanding and a more inclusive approach around mainstream behaviour difficulties in some schools.

This book is clear, easy to read and extremely interesting...If every mainstream teacher had this appendix in their working file, it would act as an aide memoire ensuring effective differentiation for a range of students.

Author: Cate Wood , former Senco and director of ECM at a secondary school
