The Survival Guide for Kids
with Behavior Challenges

How to Make Good Choices and Stay Out of Trouble
Thomas McIntyre, Ph.D. (Grades 3–8)
Kids who are labeled with behavior disorder (BD, ED, EBD, or SED) struggle every day—with their peers, teachers, parents, and themselves. It's no fun to be labeled, and nobody wants to have behavior problems. Often, however, students who frequently misbehave don't know how else to act. This book can help them improve their behavior and their lives. Kids learn to believe in themselves, take responsibility for their actions, make smarter choices, and enjoy the results of their better behavior. 176 pages. DMBSG2V • $15
