Patricia Snyder, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Special Education and Early Childhood Studies, David Lawrence, Jr. Endowed Chair in Early Childhood Studies, Director, Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies, University of Florida - January 11, 2022
"Through Prevent-Teach-Reinforce for Young Children, Second Edition, Dunlap and colleagues have once again given the early childhood field a much-needed, evidence-based, socially valid model for providing individualized positive behavior support to young children. Moreover, the principles that undergird the model align with recommended practices in the field. Using a step-by-step approach, readers are skillfully guided through the implementation of PTR-YC in early childhood classrooms. Materials and case examples illustrate how to use the model as intended. The second edition of this text builds on the first by incorporating feedback received from those, including me, who have used the first edition successfully in a variety of early childhood classrooms. I will recommend this updated second edition to all my early childhood students and colleagues!"

“Prevent-Teach-Reinforce for Young Children, Second Edition, has several technical and adaptive enhancements that will lead to greater efficiency and fidelity—enhancements I believe will improve the PTR-YC process for families, coaches, practitioners, and programs.”
Malena Argumedes, Ph.D., Professor, Departement de Psychoéducation, Université de Sherbrooke, Qc, Canada - January 9, 2022
"I’ve been working with the PTR-YC since it came out in 2013, first as a research assistant and then in my own research projects. This second edition provides very useful additions, specifically for emergency procedures and classroom readiness for implementing PTR-YC. Teachers and educators are often preoccupated by extreme challenging behaviors in the classroom and the safety of the whole group. I am delighted with the additions and I am sure that they will enhance the fidelity of implementation throughout the entire process. The field of Positive Behavior Support and Early Childhood will definitely benefit from this second edition of the PTR-YC, as well as the children and their families. I sure will be using this new version in my everyday practice!"
Renee Miner, M.Ed., Associate Director, Behavior, Autism, and Low Incidence Disabilities, Center for School and Community Partnerships, Boise State University - January 5, 2022
"PTR-YC, Second Edition, is a great resource for program staff who work with young children to develop social-emotional competencies and minimize problem behavior. Grounded in behavioral science, positive practices, and educational research, this PTR-YC manual provides a comprehensive and easy-to-read guide to design high-quality learning environments for all children. The revised edition includes a detailed table of contents that makes navigating the manual very efficient. The book also includes case studies, templates and printable forms, as well as online resources that are simple, but essential, in the PTR-YC process."
