Course Description

  • 'Help for Billy' is a very inspiring, insightful, and practical book for parents and professionals who would like to work in partnership to help ensure the educational success for all the Billys we will encounter in our lifetime who have experienced trauma and are presenting with challenging behaviors in our classrooms.

Her book presents staff and parents with real life insight and solutions for working with the 'unteachable child' by providing them with practical approaches, effective commonsense strategies, and tools that provide us with hope for the future of all the Billys of the world. 'Help for Billy' is a must read for all educators, administrators, and parents interested in making a difference in the lives of the 'unteachable child.'"
