Editors
Best practices currently advocate that education professionals consult and collaborate with
colleagues across disciplines as a means of providing students and their families a
comprehensive, developmental approach to students’ academic, career, and social/personal
growth. This volume has been developed to inform in-service and pre-service professional
educators, including teachers, school counselors, school psychologists, speech language
pathologists, administrators, and other school professionals, about useful techniques, ideas,
competencies, and skills when addressing the comprehensive development of children in
schools and school settings.
