Book Overview

Based on a collaboration dating back nearly a decade, the authors of The Behavior Code--a behavioral analyst and a child psychiatrist--reveal their systematic approach for deciphering causes and patterns of difficult student behaviors and matching them with proven strategies that get students back on track academically. This book includes user-friendly worksheets and other helpful resources for applying the authors' approach.

Teaching is an art, but it's one that can be improved with science. Based on what we have learned in the field of psychology, The Behavior Code gives teachers the tools to transform the behavior patterns of some of their most challenging students. By using this essential book, teachers--instead of punishing or writing off troubled students--can get them onto a path for success. -- Geoffrey Canada, president and ceo, Harlem Children's Zone

The Behavior Code is truly a godsend. Concisely written and easy to read, this book offers a framework for creating successful behavioral plans. I predict that once teachers and principals begin to apply the authors' approach for understanding and changing problematic behavior, they'll never look elsewhere for help again. Buy it, read it, use it, read it again and again--and pass it on! -- William S. Pollack, associate clinical professor, Department of Read More chevron_right

   More for Teachers
The book was good and had useful ideas, but was somewhat disappointed that the book was more oriented towards teachers than parents.

   Parents need this, too!
As a parent, I believe that occasionally, all children feel anxious, angry, or depressed. School can be difficult on bad days, but we also need help at home. The Behavior Code methods may be designed for the classroom, but I am so happy to have something to try at home too! Just a few tips have already helped! We want to do everything we can to help our children and give them good life tools.

   Changed How I Parent.
I am a parent, and I thought I would purchase to see what strategies teachers use with my own child. I found my child's inconsistent behavior to be frustrating and aggravating ''. This book is very enlightening as it discusses behavior as a set of skills we learn and how children may not have the neural connections to act or respond logically. We impose so many adult concepts and understandings on our children, and we fail to remember that they don 't have the same sequential or logic skills that we do. It teaches how to take a step back and get to the core cause of a behavior that may not be consistent from event to event and to work with your child to modify new behavior so that they learn new skills.

   Great, Easy Read!
I began reading this book just by reading it. I am only 30% through the book. However, I have already begun to understand the behaviors of my 15 boys and 6 girls. Many of my students exhibit behaviors of avoidance. Of course, they are my battlers. They struggle to write, they struggle to read, one is a perfectionist and daily, I must separate him from his mother. I can not wait to put some of these interventions to work after the Christmas break!

   Informative and Compassionate
This is a great book because it doesn 't try to do too much. It provides a specific framework and strategies for handling some of the most difficult student behaviors.
