Overcoming Learning and Behaiour Difficulties
by Kevin Jones and Tony Charlton

It seem that this is one of the first books I have seen which acknowledges that one of the best ways to help overcome some of the main behavioural difficulties within the classroom is for a better relastionship to be established between the child and the teacher. By this I mean that the child and their opinions, ideas and input is taken into consideration when trying to work achievable targets to encourage learning and behaviour control.

The authors look at the 'need for teaching-and learning -relastionships in which the children's intrests abilities and concerns are seen, to be at the centre of the curriculum.

This unique acknowledgement encourages the involvment of the pupil in any decissions by and trying to work the curriculum to things of their interest to encourage individual learning and behaviour control.

The other thing I like about the approach of the authors is their acceptance to look for underlining factors which are partly causing the behaviour problems.

They look into various conditions i.e. Autistic tendancies as well as other emotional problems such as family situations and bereavment.

Many of these are not normally descussed or considered when dealing with learning or behavioural problems of the child. In fact all of these need to be considered first so as to establish correct intervention.

The authors then discuss various intervention strataggies which can be implemented to help.

By working together with teachers pupils and parents maximum results can be achieved which leads to more success for the child and school and will help boost the Childs self esteem.

Great book. I congratulate the authors for putting their insight into a book which is a must for those working with vunerable children which is so reader friendly and in plain understandable language.
