About the Author

Jessica Minahan is a board-certified behavior analyst and special educator who is currently employed in the Newton (Mass.) public school system as a district-wide behavior analyst. Nancy Rappaport is an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of In Her Wake: A Child Psychiatrist Explores the Mystery of Her Mother's Suicide (Basic Books, 2009).


"The Behavior Code needs to be read by all teachers, counselors, administrators, and parents!/From cover to cover I felt Minahan and Rappaport were speaking to me, an elementary teacher and a mom. I felt they knew me, and knew those students who kept me awake at night. Teachers, this book is written by authors who KNOW what our jobs are like." -- Lorna d'Entremont, Special Needs Book Review
"This text takes us one step closer toward blending the education and mental health worlds, extracting the best strategies from both, and applying them to challenging cases. As child psychiatrists be- come even more embedded in schools, consulting to some of the most challenging students, the resources in The Behavior Code are helpful, practical tools we can offer teachers with whom we work." -- Sheryl H. Kataoka, Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
"This was an excellent book with really unique ideas on how to help children with challenging behaviors channel their energies in acceptable ways. This is the best book I've ever read on the topic, hands down. " --Teacher's Toolbox
