Working with Children Who Challenge Us
Friday Afternoon, Sessions 3 and 4
Memorial Student Center, Great Hall
Debra Lawrence, Ph.D
Children come into our programs with a vast array of experiences. Understanding the function of behaviors that challenge us and recognizing the forms that these behaviors manifest can assist in determining the best strategy to teach replacement behaviors. This session helps participants identify the cause of challenging behaviors, provides several strategies for working with these behaviors, and teaches preventive instead of reactive measures, so all children are successful.
