Exciting New Book! Adventures In Special Education

This book is intended to assist behavior analysts, special educators, and other professionals in their treatment of persons with disabilities who exhibit behavior problems in classroom settings. If you’re trying to understand behavior so that you can figure out 1) how you can behave differently, 2) how to change the environment, and 3)how to pick skills to teach, then this book is for you. The book contains 45 minutes of video of Dr. Winston as he introduces each chapter and there is also a bonus embedded PowerPoint presentation on how to reduce/eliminate restraint use.

"Dr. Winston’s book is a great read for all parents, educators and anyone who deals with students with behavioral challenges, whether they have disabilities or no labels at all. The real life examples were both humorous and thought provoking. I believe this book will make a big change in how we all look at labels, reinforcement, and many other things that affect how we treat and educate children. It will make us better practitioners, parents and educators. I would highly recommend this book and I plan to use it for training my own staff.”

Testimonials
"PCM has given the ADT (adult day training) staff a better understanding of the use of prevention strategies. As an instructor, I focus on the verbal strategies with staff. The number of hands on interventions in ADT has decreased due to the use of PCM non-physical strategies."

"My organization has used PCMA's consulting services to develop and implement a group behavioral incentive system, to provide consultations for individual students and to train our staff. The behavior analysts from PCMA were professional, knowledgeable, and skillful. They provided us with excellent services that were well worth the investment. I would recommend PCMA's consulting services without hesitation to any organization that wants effective programming that get results."
