Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Depression. Aspergerís Syndrome. ADHD. In our age of mainstreaming, many students have these and other mental health issues and learning problems. How can educators recognize the symptoms, respond appropriately, and meet studentsí learning needs while preventing or addressing disruptive behaviors? Written by a clinical psychologist, this user-friendly, jargon-free guide describes mental health and learning disorders often observed in school children, explains how each might be exhibited in the classroom, and offers expert suggestions on what to do (and sometimes what not to do).
