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
"The Mt. Pleasant Center is currently using the Nexxus Gate, LLC Incident Management System and Restraint Tracking System. These programs have been a life saver! They have saved us an enormous amount of time in entry, tracking and report building. The ability to export the information into a word document has allowed the data and reports to be shared quickly and accurately with the persons and committees that need the information to continue to improve the quality of the services we provide to our residents. The personal service received for adapting the program to meet our needs has been excellent. Nexxus Gate exceeded all expectations for speed, accuracy and a true understanding of what we needed the programs to do! "
