Here is my presentation from the Child Mental Health Research and Policy Conference USF.FBA Across Sectors: Perspective on Behavior Matters
My book, School Success for Kids with Emotional and Behavior Disorders,Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Prufrock Press
Emphasizes the importance of the adult perspective on a child's behavior. If the adult sees the behavior as OPPOSITIONAL, the adult will treat the behavior as a POWER PLAY. But if the adult sees the child's behavior as COMMUNICATION, the adult is far more likely to intervene by TEACHING COMMUNICATION.
