Description

This document includes a number of substantially revised handouts updated from the previous editions, plus many new topics that reflect the challenges parents and educators face in the 21st century. Many handouts for families are also provided in Spanish. This document is a comprehensive resource for professionals seeking ways to communicate key information and intervention strategies to teachers, administrators, child advocates, parents, child care workers--anyone who works with children and youth. It reflects the continuing commitment of the National Association of School Psychologists to provide research-based yet accessible information to those concerned with promoting children's healthy learning and development. Leading experts and experienced professionals contributed to over 250 handouts in their areas of specialization. Other experts and practicing school psychologists provided reviews and editorial suggestions for every handout. New in this edition is a selection of handouts for youth. The Teen Issues section provides teens with relevant, age-appropriate information on many issues, such as anxiety and suicide prevention, that can affect their social, emotional, academic, or physical well-being. Because of the magnitude of the project, "Helping Children at Home and School II" has five editors, all from different parts of the country, representing practitioners in public school systems and private practice, and school psychology trainers and researchers. This document is organized into the following sections: (1) Parenting; (2) Home and School; (3) Instruction and Curriculum; (4) Behavior and Discipline; (5) Social Development and Mental Health; (6) Health and Wellness; (7) Diversity; (8) Special Populations; (9) Crisis and Safety; (10) Teen Issues; and (11) Bibliographies--Bonus CD-Only.
