Exciting New Book! Adventures In Special Education

This book is intended to assist behavior analysts, special educators, and other professionals in their treatment of persons with disabilities who exhibit behavior problems in classroom settings. If you’re trying to understand behavior so that you can figure out 1) how you can behave differently, 2) how to change the environment, and 3)how to pick skills to teach, then this book is for you. The book contains 45 minutes of video of Dr. Winston as he introduces each chapter and there is also a bonus embedded PowerPoint presentation on how to reduce/eliminate restraint use.

"Dr. Winston’s book is a great read for all parents, educators and anyone who deals with students with behavioral challenges, whether they have disabilities or no labels at all. The real life examples were both humorous and thought provoking. I believe this book will make a big change in how we all look at labels, reinforcement, and many other things that affect how we treat and educate children. It will make us better practitioners, parents and educators. I would highly recommend this book and I plan to use it for training my own staff.”

Testimonials
"I have been a trainer in CPI, Safety Care, TCI, Mandt, and Professional Crisis Management. I can say with 15 years of experience implementing each of these procedures, that Professional Crisis Management is by far the most effective methodology in keeping folks safe, and decreasing crises. It also is the only form of crisis management that has peer reviewed publications evidencing demonstrated reduction in restraints, injuries (both to staff and consumers), and promotes pro-active procedures to reduce the likelihood physical intervention is needed. Also, with Professional Crisis Management, there are no pain causing holds, or any holds that hold the person off balance, or put undue pressure on joints."
