Behavior Code Book Cover

ND Educational Hub — Book Read–Register Today!

The Behavior Code: A Practical Guide to Understanding and Teaching the Most Challenging Studentswith Nancy Rappaport, was published by Harvard Education Press, April 19, 2012.

The Behavior Code reveals a systematic approach for deciphering causes and patterns of difficult behaviors and how to match them with proven strategies for getting students back on track so they can learn effectively.

The Behavior Code provides the conceptual background for breaking the code of the four most challenging students in the classroom: students with anxiety-related, oppositional, withdrawn and sexualized behaviors. The book provides, in a user-friendly format, a different kind of behavior intervention plan — we call it the FAIR plan — that outlines effective interventions for students demonstrating these challenging behaviors.
