Practical Strategies for Addressing Challenging Behaviour
Author: Tony Osgood
Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers
This highly practical book is an accessible and grounded handbook for addressing challenging behaviour in children and adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD), including autism. It recognises that challenging behaviour does not appear out of nowhere and is meaningful for the person exhibiting it. Behaviour can be communicative and an important signifier of underlying sensory or environmental issues. Focusing on a person-centred approach throughout, the book has advice and strategies for working with the client's families, support staff and professionals. It also presents best practice for analysing and addressing challenging behaviour in various settings such as schools, hospitals and the home, all while stressing the need to keep the human story at the heart of any assessment and intervention. Each chapter features questions for discussion or reflection and exercises for the reader to complete. Informal, frank and free of jargon, this is indispensable for professionals, parents, and anyone working with people with intellectual disability or autism.
Zippo doesn't want to be an ordinary hippo. He wants to be super! "Everyone has a super power," says his best friend Roxi. "You just have to work out what yours is." Being good at swimming and splashing in mud aren't really superpowers though. Perhaps Zippo can fly like Roxi. But who's ever heard of a flying hippopotamus? Especially one with such a big bottom. Maybe there's a power in that . . . From award-winning author Kes Gray and exciting new illustrating talent Nikki Dyson. This fantastically funny superhero will be flying into children's imaginations and inspiring them to celebrate all that is super about themselves.
How to Create Humorous Programs for Children and Young Adults

This is how storyteller, librarian, and all-around jokester Rob Reid opens his delightful new book, Something Funny Happened at the Library. Wouldn't it be great if kids came home from the library holding their sides, eager to pass on the funny things they heard in the library that day? According to Reid, the best way to get the attention of young people is to make them laugh. From easy-to-win-over preschoolers to unimpressed teens, this book will serve as your personal humor coach for even the toughest audiences out there. With tricks of the trade on how to warm up an audience, choose age-appropriate material, use facial and vocal expressions to lure them in, and select props, you're on your way to something very funny! Young children won't be able to hold in their giggles after such programs as "The World's Worst Ice-Cream Story," and intermediate school-age kids will love to take part in book theme parties in honor of Captain Underpants or such special celebrations as "Boo Ha-Ha!" Even those middle- and high-school students, once convinced to participate in "Comedy Club" (a program that combines reading and stand-up) or spoonerisms (a wordplay game), will be rolling in the aisles. To enrich all of these programs, Reid also includes a funny reader's theater script, tips on how to host lively library tours and school visits, and even rap songs that extol the virtues of reading and the library! A complete resource for getting children and young adults snickering and having fun in the stacks with innovative programming that uses humor, Something Funny helps you to connect with children and young adults and, along the way, make the library the hippest place in town!
