NIFDI Press Publishes New Book by Zig Engelmann

NIFDI Press has recently released Strategies for Teaching Students with Severe and Low-Incidence Disabilities, by Siegfried Engelmann. The book, edited by Caitlin Rasplica Khoury and Jean Stockard, is a revision of Zig's earlier unpublished manuscript, The Low-Performers Manual. The book focuses on working with individuals who may require additional instruction in language-based skills, motor skills and in management of disruptive behavior prior to being taught in a general education setting. Zig describes the book as "useful for understanding how to teach learners that are too low in language for the beginning language program Language for Learning. There are specifications for creating routines that address behaviors as well as instructional content." To order your print or ebook copy, click here.
