Increasing numbers of children attending pre school provision have led to increasing referrals to the advisory services for behavioural issues. Children appear to be having difficulty conforming to social expectations in educational settings and are presenting us with more extreme behaviours. In spite of much advice already available in the form of written material, books and TV programmes there appears to be an increase in behaviours reported and in practitioners searching for managing strategies. The suggested strategies are based upon long, varied experiences in real life situations and have a grounding in practice, designed to be manageable, realistic and relevant to educational settings. They cover the following behaviours:

Self harm


Running away

Sexualised behaviour

Refusal to talk

Uncooperative behaviour

Aggressive behaviour

Managing Extreme Behaviours in the Early Years, the fifth of the Tried and Tested Strategies series, is a ready-to-hand and easy to read guide for those dealing with problem behaviour and who do not always have the time to search for solutions.

'The book is laid out well and is an easy read; I particularly liked the "What can help" boxes which stand out well on a page. I liked the way each section gave a clear explanation of its focus topic followed by a range of suggestions for future action. The authors are explicit about their aims for their book, recognising that there are no "quick fixes", but that it will begin to address the issue, providing possible reasons for extreme behaviours in young children and practical suggestions for handling such. I would happily recommend this book to colleagues in education; in fact have already started to do so.' - Jill McMinn, Advisory Teacher Speech, Language, Communication, Wrexham
