Innovative Interventions for Today's Exceptional Kids provides teachers, parents, administrators, and school counselors with an intervention framework to help the struggling children. The focus of the Scannella and McCarthy's approach is preventative rather than reactive and remedial. Based on sound management practices, rather than gimmicks and techniques, this book provides guidelines to assist in proper child development, both behavioral and academic. The strategies and interventions, which are grounded in solid research and practice, include solutions for issues that educators face daily. A supportive professional tool that will help all adults acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to be able to strengthen a child's capacity to function successfully and with resiliency, Innovative Interventions for Today's Exceptional Kids blends the disciplines of cognitive psychology, neurolinguistics, and personality theory.
