Behavior Solutions for
the Inclusive Classroom
By Beth Anne, Beth Burt,
& Peter Gennaro
As inclusion becomes the norm in general education, teachers are faced with behaviors they have never seen before. Special needs educators may recognize the telltale symptom of a sensory need or a text-book case of an avoidance behavior, but this is all new territory for the general-ed crowd! Written by Director of Special Education Peter Gennaro, occupational therapist Beth Aune, and special needs mom and advocate Beth Burt, this book illuminates possible causes of those mysterious behaviors, and more importantly, provides solutions. Teachers can quickly look up an in-the-moment solution and learn what the child may be communicating, and why.
