K. McVilly. First published 2003 (212pp.)

This accessible book is an essential resource for support workers and other disability professionals, educators and students in the intellectual disability field.

It provides evidence-based information to help the reader understand challenging behaviour, to develop and implement behaviour support plans, and monitor those plans to ensure their ongoing effectiveness. Clear guidance is provided on ethical and legal principles underpinning behaviour support. Examples of charts and forms provide materials for use in practice.

Combining cutting edge research and contemporary best practice, this practical book presents a holistic, bio-psycho-social approach to behaviour support designed to promote quality of life for people with disability.
