School Success for Kids With Emotional and Behavioral Disorders is an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, and clinicians alike. This book documents the history of, the process for and the implementation of interventions for children with emotional and behavioral disorders in the school setting ... As a clinician trained in the medical model of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, I especially found this book helpful in updating my own knowledge about the educational assessments, interventions and implementation processes available for these very challenging students. As a result, I have become a more informed and effective advocate for my patients. ,Stuart R. Varon, M.D., 9/9/11
