Chapter Three provides an overview of the empirical evidences available within the last decade for reducing challenging behaviors of children with developmental disabilities. Chapter Four analyzes bereaved children to explore the expression of grief and related experiences in the children’s artworks and narratives. Chapter Five investigates Chinese elementary school students’ motivation to read English and attitude toward learning English using mixed research methods.
