Collaborative Consultation In The Schools
Effective Practices for Students With Learning and Behavior Problems
This authoritative book looks at the consultation process as a collaborative, problem-solving endeavor designed to help practitioners assist others, usually parents or teachers, in their work with students who have, or are at risk for, behavioral or learning problems. The focus is on having consultants bridge the gap between research and practice in schools, and on striving to initiate evidence-based practices whenever possible. The authors also stress providing interventions that are proportional to the student’s needs. They look at how, through data-based systems-change, schools are redistributing their resources along MultiTiered Systems of Support (MTSS) so those in greatest need receive the most intensive help.
