Now early childhood professionals have their own guide to the popular Prevent-Teach-Reinforce (PTR) model: the research-proven, family-centred approach used in many schools to resolve challenging behaviours. Developed by top behaviour experts, this practical, reader-friendly guidebook shows you how to improve the social-emotional development and prevent challenging behaviours of young children in pre-school settings by:

  • Preventing behaviour problems
  • Teaching proactive communication and social skills
  • Reinforcing positive behaviour

A highly effective approach drawn from the research and principles of applied behaviour analysis and positive behaviour support, Prevent-Teach-Reinforce for Young Children will help you:

  • resolve persistent challenging behaviours
  • address problem behaviours common in younger children
  • set individualised goals for children
  • conduct family-centred assessment and intervention
  • help children with and without disabilities
  • work effectively with diverse families
  • collect reliable data and use it to inform next steps

The CD-ROM includes planning forms and worksheets tailored for early childhood programs, including a Goal Sheet, Daily Log, Behaviour Rating Scale, Intervention Menu, and Team Implementation Guide. And four detailed case examples walk you through the PTR-YC steps and implementation.

Ideal for a wide range of early childhood settings; including pre-schools, Head Start, and child care programs; this practical guide will help you resolve even the toughest behaviour challenges in young children.
