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
"Just a little note to let you know how pleased we have been to receive and work with the Nexxus Gate software. We have appreciated all of your efforts in helping us develop the program to fit our needs. Your willingness and support has been refreshing. The software will make all of the data we collect easier to disseminate and interpret, and lighten the load of the behavior analysts in our facility. They are very excited with the graphing portion of the program and we are excited to show the results at the Local Review Committee. We look forward to a long relationship with your company."

"As a beginning teacher, I was working at a SED Center school and was trained as a Practitioner 2 in PCM. Knowing the personal safety techniques and prevention strategies enabled me to avoid being injured and to maintain calm in my classroom in the midst of a crisis."
