I found this to be a useful book. The approach it recommends is based on well-tired principles of positive behaviour management the author's style and obvious personal experience remind the reader to look beyond the challenging or nuisance element of behaviour to consider what that behaviour is trying to communicate, something that is equally applicable for all children - not just those with autistic spectrum disorders. I found this to be a very practical book and believe it would be a useful resource for anyone working with pupils whose behaviour is challenging, but especially those with autistic spectrum disorders.
Moyes gently guides her reader through the practical aspects of constructing and evaluating an effective behaviour support programme.Teachers working with children with autism will find this book particularly helpful in developing a coherent approach to supporting children in the classroom.
This book provides an excellent introduction to functional analysis of behaviour. The principles of examining behaviour and devising interventions are set out as realistic targets for the class teacher. The clear explanations and practical examples guide the reader through the steps of how to analyse behaviour and put individually tailored interventions into practice.
