Mainstream teachers who have struggled in attempts to accommodate the needs of oppositional and defiant students and felt overwhelmed in those efforts will find out why your training and instincts aren’t working with your student. The authors will show you the causes and misconceptions that surround the development and treatment of this disorder.
In the first half of the book you will learn what has been discovered to help mainstream an ODD student by engineering classroom environments, routines, and tasks to maximize positive results. You will find information on how to use a plan to temporarily remove a student in crisis from the classroom. It will help you know what to do if you become part of a team working with an oppositional and defiant student.
This is not the book you might have expected and hoped for because there is no silver bullet to guarantee your ability to successfully work with these students in mainstream classrooms. The information and insights will not end your search for professional competence in your work with these students because this whole area is in its beginning stages of analysis and understanding. Much training and time may be the final solution to working successfully with oppositional students.
The audiences for the second half of the book are really special education teachers, counselors, administrators, parents, and the broader counseling community. Choose this book if you are vitally interested in knowing about the time, the training and the temperament of a team that would be needed to successfully accommodate the educational needs of these students. While the authors have great empathy and hopes for these troubled students, they acknowledge that the inherent problems of the disorder require the teamwork of many.
