Children with emotional and behavioural difficulties can be some of the most difficult for teachers to manage. The current drive towards inclusive education means that even children who are physically aggressive to peers and teachers are taught in conventional learning environments. This invaluable guide provides teachers and trainees with practical tips and techniques for dealing with children with EBD. Containing advice on such key areas as managing the classroom, involving parents and developing strategies for dealing with the most extreme cases, this book will prove indispensable for every teacher.
