A Kinder Approach

I am an educational assistant working with a student diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder. This child came to my school after being expelled from his kindergarten class at another school! I was fortunate enough to be told about Dr. Greene's book "Lost at School", and after reading it, I immediately began trying Plan B. The changes in this student over the course of that school year were nothing short of remarkable. After having things done TO him in response to his challenging behaviours, he proved extremely receptive to having problems solved WITH him and helped solve a number of the problems he had been experiencing. I recently had the opportunity to hear Dr. Greene speak and was again inspired to continue using Plan B...a much kinder and more effective approach to assisting children with lagging skills. I would encourage all school districts to encourage their staff to read "Lost at School" and to begin learning how to use Plan B.
