Children enter the school doors today with many diverse needs: mental health problems, ADHD, anxiety, victims of physical or sexual abuse, homelessness, or facing some other type of trauma. Teachers in today’s classrooms are struggling to understand the needs of their students and to provide a supportive and nurturing environment, while maintaining structure and routine. In whatever setting students are, teachers must understand the challenges that students come to school facing, know how to assess the needs of the children, build positive relationships with them, collaborate with others, and take care of themselves. The first book in this two book volume explored the needed components in setting the stage for meeting the needs of the students. This second volume provides the specific interventions that teachers will need to implement. Included in this volume are evidence-based academic interventions and behavioral interventions. Other chapters provide interventions to incorporate wellness and the creative arts. Strategies to teach social skills and to prepare students for independent living and the world of work are also an integral part of this volume.
