How did education and behavior come to be?
Rachel is a survivor of neglect, abuse & bullying at home and in school. Rachel fell through the cracks for many years, with her school work, self-confidence, and social relationships being severely impacted. Rachel still has challenges related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Childhood Trauma.
Rachel works on self-care, healing, and helping others every day! She decided to take her passion for helping children and found Education and Behavior (educationandbehavior.com), where she is the head researcher, author, and editor.
A direct quote from Rachel Wise: “Education and Behavior is a dedication to all children of all ages and ability levels. If I can help even one child feel good about themselves and their lives, then my past was worth it and I wouldn’t change a thing. I am also doing this for my own children, so they have something I left behind in their honor of them, when I pass.
After spending time in a number of different home, school, and community settings, I observed a need to bridge consistencies within and across environments for children. Research demonstrates the benefits of consistency within and across academic settings.
How can educationandbehavior.com help you and your child, student or client?
Education and Behavior (educationandbehavior.com) provides a go-to research spot for parents, educators, and clinicians. The team can review the research on a topic before a meeting, or while discussing strategies to support the child.
Everything on educationandbehavior.com is explained in easy-to-understand terms so there is no need to try to search for, dissect or understand peer-reviewed journal articles with psychological or educational jargon.
Luckily we cite our sources, so if you did want to read the scientific research studies you can access them at when we link to research at sites such as like ERIC, Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, Springer Links, or Sage Journals.
Below are some examples of research studies on the benefits of consistency for children (the reason educationandbehavior.com was founded – to bridge gaps in consistency):
- Observed Quality and Consistency of Fifth Graders’ Teacher–Student Interactions: Associations With Feelings, Engagement, and Performance in School
- Parenting Practices, Bedtime Routines, and Consistency: Associations with Pediatric Sleep Problems
- Examining Behavioral Techniques, Encouragement, and Consistency in Classroom Management
Another way educationandbehavior.com is helpful to students (and adults) is that individuals can read the research recommendations directly on our site (in easy-to-understand terms as mentioned) and share anything they find helful for children, with their family, colleagues, students, clients, etc.
Instructors can email our content or print it for a parenting class or school-staff training. Parents, school staff, and educational advocates can come prepared to an IEP meeting or send their info to the IEP team. Parents and teachers can share research with each other, etc. Videos can also be found to support children on our Youtube Channel and can be shared at trainings and meetings. Videos can also be sent to friends, family, colleagues, or linked to/embedded on other websites etc.
