Ensure that every school has a comprehensive and adaptable system of learning support in the classroom and throughout the school!

Every teacher knows about barriers to learning and teaching that interfere with student progress and academic achievement. These barriers to learning can hamper a student's ability to participate effectively and benefit fully from classroom instruction and other educational activities. For school improvement efforts to succeed in ways that truly improve student achievement, schools must provide students with learning support in a comprehensive, multidimensional and cohesive way.

This innovative guide by Howard Adelman and Linda Taylor is designed to accompany their new School Leader's Guide to Student Learning Supports. Together, these two handbooks comprise a complete and adaptable system for addressing barriers to learning and teaching. The authors offer specific ideas, procedures, resources, tools, and guides for motivating students, personalizing instruction and curriculum, promoting development, building school and community partnerships, and closing the gap between the learning supports students need and the learning supports they are currently receiving.

This unique guide for teachers, counselors, school administrators, and student support staff is based on an unparalleled New Directions for Student Support Initiative endorsed by more than 20 professional associations, including:

The American School Counselors Association

The American School Health Association

The National Association of Pupil Services Administrators

The National Association of School Nurses

The National Association of School Psychologists

The School Social Work Association of America

And others!
