POWERPOINT SLIDE SHOWS

NOTE #1 : The slide shows are highly animated.  If you watch the show, it might stop at red punctuation marks… to allow you to guess the answers that will appear when you click the mouse.  A green punctuation mark indicates the end of a slide.  Click the mouse to go to the next slide.   NOTE #2: You can avoid all the clicking and waiting: When the slide show appears on your screen, ”right click” on your mouse (PC users), and then select “edit slides”.  That act will allow you to view all of the slides at once without all the animation.

WRITTEN MATERIALS

THE BEHAVIOR SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR KIDS:
How to Make Good Choices and Stay Out of Trouble
by Tom McIntyre, Ph.D.  (Dr. Mac)

ALSO AVAILABLE IN SPANISH, KOREAN, & CROATIAN! (see below)

*A self-help book designed for kids with behavior challenges, they can make use of the book independently (given a 4th grade reading level), or teachers/counselors can use the text to guide small groups of students who need to work on their behavior at home and school.  Parents will also find it helpful in changing their child’s behavior for the better.
Kids who face behavioral challenges struggle every day—with their peers, teachers, parents, and themselves. Often, however, kids who get in trouble a lot don’t know how else to act in those situations. Maybe they can state the behavior they should be showing, but they don’t have any history of practicing these desired ways of behaving.  This book can help them make better choices that will improve their behavior and their lives.

THE BEHAVIOR SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR KIDS guides youngsters to better understand themselves and the problems their behavior creates.  In kid language, “Dr. Mac” describes what BD is (and isn’t), the types and causes of BD, and special school programs for kids with BD.  He provides many strategies that kids can use to handle strong feelings and make positive choices.  Stories and quotes from real kids labeled as being behavior disordered let readers know they’re not alone; “It’s your turn” segments present activities for practicing these new ways to behave.  Kids learn to believe in themselves, take responsibility for their actions, make smarter choices, and enjoy the results of their better behavior.  The book includes a glossary and additional resources for kids, parents, and teachers. his page is under construction.

This book can be purchased at Amazon.com   There, you will also find other information and testimonials from parents and kids.

FREE!  100 lessons plans based upon the Behavior Survival Guide (but they can be used alone to build social skills, character, anger management, and self efficacy).  Organized by chapter, these plans allow you to extend the material found in the BSG… the only social skills and character development program written FOR kids (not just the teachers). Click on the homepage button for “100 lesson plans”.
