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

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

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

  • resolve persistent challenging behaviors
  • address problem behaviors common in younger children
  • set individualized goals for children
  • conduct family-centered 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, Behavior 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 preschools, Head Start, and child care programs—this practical guide will help you resolve even the toughest behavior challenges in young children.
