An Educator’s Guide to Children’s Mental Health
The DSM-V is coming out in May. We will be revising this guide with the new information. You may want to wait to purchase this guide until after the revision.
Previously titled A Teacher’s Guide to Children’s Mental Health, this book equips educators with the tools they need to reach all students. It includes sections on what you may see if a student has a mental health disorder, how mental health disorders and medications affect student performance, and how to best form partnerships with parents. The Guide also includes fact sheets on 15 common childhood mental health disorders. The fact sheets describe the disorders, list the common symptoms and behaviors, and give appropriate classroom strategies and accommodations.
