FHSU psychologist co-edits book on helping children

Leslie Z. Paige, grants facilitator for the Fort Hays State University Graduate School and the Docking Institute of Public Affairs, is a co-editor of a recently published book, Helping Children at Home and School II: Handouts for Families and Children.

Promoting the healthy development of children and youth, Helping Children at Home and School II is an updated and expanded resource book for parents, educators, child advocates, and teens. As a co-editor and handout author, Paige worked with leading experts and experienced professionals who contributed more than 250 research-based yet accessible handouts. Many key handouts for families are also provided in Spanish.

The handouts are available in hard copy and CD-ROM format to help professionals communicate up-to-date information and proven, solution-based strategies for home and classroom applications. This comprehensive set of handouts is a valuable resource for professionals seeking ways to communicate key information and intervention strategies to teachers, administrators, child advocates, parents, child-care workers, and anyone who works with children and youth. The handouts are not intended to be comprehensive reports or detailed prescriptions, but to provide sufficient information to clarify important issues, initial steps to take in addressing a problem, and suggestions for further courses of action.

Topic areas include parenting; home and school connections; instruction and curriculum; behavior and discipline; social development and mental health; health and wellness; diversity; special populations and special education; crisis and safety; and teen topics.

Helping Children at Home and School II (2004) was edited by Andrea S. Canter, Leslie Z. Paige, Mark Roth, Ivonne Romero, and Servio Carroll, and was published by the National Association of School Psychologists.
