This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher was written by Amy Wright. Managing challenging behaviors of students with special needs is not only a concern within the confines of the educational setting, but it is also an issue that can significantly impact effective collaborations between school personnel and the families of the students. Identifying challenging behaviors at an early age, developing effective intervention strategies to manage these behaviors, in addition to fostering cohesive collaboration between teachers and parents; are all important in addressing this issue. Studies have shown that effective parent-teacher collaboration is the most crucial element when analyzing the overall outcome of behavior interventions.
