MEDIA REVIEWS
'The use of Nurture Groups is central to an intelligent and effective behaviour strategy. Where they have been used in schools the results have been very encouraging and in my recent behaviour review for the Secretary of State I was keen to support their further development. Children learn how to behave and bad habits are rarely fixed. It is the responsibility of us all to do our best to help our children acquire the skills and attitudes that will enable them to become happy members of society. Inevitably problems will arise. When they do, effective early intervention is essential. This book should be read by all those who work with children and who believe in their potential for success' - Sir Alan Steer

Author of Learning Behaviour - Lessons Learned, D.C.S.F. Behaviour Adviser
