Understanding and Supporting Children with Challenging Behaviors

Wednesday, September 13, 2023

9:00-11:00 am

Online via Zoom

Behavior in all forms, such as facial expressions and body language, can convey messages. This workshop will explore the nature of a child’s behavior, some possible root causes, and strategies to promote positive behaviors. We will look at various supports and services available through school and in the community, and discuss options for when more support is needed. ¨

  • Look at behavior as a form of communication
  • Identify possible causes of challenging behaviors
  • Identify supports and services available through the school district and community
