  • Numerous strategies on how to manage kindergarten children
  • How to use relaxation, guided imagery, visualization techniques, and music to get the most from your students
  • How to avoid problems during transitional and noninstructional times
  • A Parent's Story that deals with the many issues, feelings, and struggles that families face when a child has this disorder
  • Interviews with teens and adults who share what made a significant difference in their lives

Plus you get sample contracts, charts, a student self-evaluation checklist, sample letters and documentation on communicating with physicians and agencies, a learning styles interview to use with children, obseration sheets, and an outline for a social skills planning unit to help you successfully manage the impulsive, overly stimulated, "quick-to-anger" child as well as the child who just can't focus.
