What is the Free Resource?
Education and Behavior (educationandbehavior.com) is a free online library of research-based strategies to support children’s academic, behavioral, and social-emotional development.
Education and Behavior was created in 2014 by school psychologist and licensed behavior specialist, Rachel Wise.
How Did Education and Behavior Come to Be?
After spending time in a number of different home, school, and community settings, Rachel observed a need to bridge consistency within and across environments.
Education and Behavior is meant to be the 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. Individuals can also read the research and share anything they find relevant with their family, colleagues, students, clients, etc.
At Education and Behavior, you can find answers to questions such as:
- how do I support my child with ADHD, Autism, or Learning Disabilities?
- how can I help a child with behavioral challenges?
- what type of supports are available to my child in school?
- what strategies will help my child/student with reading, writing, and/or math?
- what can we do to reduce bullying?
- should my child be evaluated for special education?
- how can I support a child with anxiety or depression?
- how can I use fitness to support my child?
- how can I help my child/client understand expectations and improve social skills?
- where can I find social stories for a child?
- how does homeschooling impact children?
- what is cyber school like?
- what true stories about people with special needs will inspire my child?
This is just an example of what you can find. To see the full scope of what our library has to offer stop by our home page at educationandbehavior.com.
