Stressing that every child has some kind of special need, especially children with challenging behavior, this book contains numerous practical, indispensable tips for responding to those needs, building relationships with children and their families, and preventing challenging behavior. It provides teachers with background information that enables them to understand why children behave the way they do and presents several evidence-based strategies to address their challenging behavior effectively so that teachers can select those best suited to the child and the situation. Useful to education students as well as in-service teachers in pre-school, child care, and primary school, the book emphasizes the importance of the teacher’s role in the behavior of children and encourages students and educators to reflect on their own values, feelings, and actions.

ABSTRACT: Challenging behaviors in young children are a growing problem that interferes with children's social-emotional and academic development. Within the field of early childhood, experts differ regarding appropriate practices for addressing challenging behavior in young children. This study explores the relationship between experts' theoretical orientations and strategy recommendations for addressing 3 types of challenging behaviors in young children. This study examines whether identifying as a behaviorist or constructivist affects specific strategies recommended for managing physical aggression, verbal aggression, and noncompliance in three- and four-year-old children. Participants responded to survey vignettes regarding the likelihood that they would recommend 11 strategies. Theoretical orientation and the behavior presented were found to impact the likelihood of specific strategy recommendation. Implications regarding the impact of such findings on consultative relationships and teacher training is discussed.

Providing practical solutions to common behavioral problems, this book shows how to use the positive momentum approach to encourage long-term positive behaviour among children aged 3-9. Covering issues such as what to do when a child avoids doing work, when they engage in rough play, and when they won't stay in their seat, this book includes targeted behavioral strategies that start with the underlying foundations of behaviour and result in lasting positive change. Through real life examples, the book shows how educators can be role models for children, and how school staff can collaborate with families for success beyond the classroom. The book also includes information specific to working with children with special needs. Accompanying behaviour charts and goal mapping resources are available to download to help with tracking a child's progress.

Young children with challenging behavior may require individualized interventions to facilitate improved outcomes. Visual activity schedules (VAS) have been well documented for improving engagement, transition, and recreation behaviors with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual disabilities (ID). However, children exhibiting challenging behavior in inclusive preschool settings do not necessarily have an ASD or ID diagnosis. This study evaluated the use of constant time delay (CTD) to teach three children without ASD or ID to use VAS. Engagement and challenging behavior were measured in the context of A-B-A-B withdrawal designs. Children learned to use the VAS and levels of engagement and challenging behavior matched levels similar to typical peers. However, children did not generalize schedule use to novel contexts. Results suggested that CTD+VAS may be a feasible individualized intervention to increase engagement in young children with challenging behavior who do not have ASD or ID.

'The book provides a comprehensive, yet practical discussion of guidance strategies that can be implemented in a variety of situations. These strategies promote a respect for children and their rights, enhance children's self-esteem, and help to foster pro-social skills. This book is a must-read for both students and practitioners who work with children and families.' - Dr Laura McFarland, School of Education, Charles Sturt University Drawing on the latest research evidence, Young Children's Behaviour outlines the beliefs and values that underpin the guidance approach to managing the behaviours of children from birth to eight years of age. In contrast with rewards-and-punishment systems, guidance believes that children do not need incentives to behave well, but instead need skills. Rather than punishing them for lacking skills, guidance teaches young children self-regulation skills so that they can behave considerately. The author provides practical strategies that both meet children's needs and safeguard the rights of surrounding adults and children. These methods include listening, being assertive, giving positive instructions, solving problems collaboratively, and coaching children to self-regulate their emotions and impulses. The text also offers advice on responding to many common challenges including separation distress, meltdowns, aggression, and social withdrawal. Finally, the book suggests how educators can provide educational and behavioural support for children with atypical development and describes how to foster effective relationships with parents whose children display challenging behaviours. Dr Louise Porter powerfully argues that behaviour guidance is the most effective approach to working with young children and reflects the deepest values of early childhood education and care.
