Challenging Behavior: Reveal the Meaning

96 % of 100

Children express their needs through words, facial expressions, body language, and behavior.  When communication is sent in the form of challenging behavior, understanding the message can be difficult.  Participants will explore the ways children speak to us through behavior and will examine the role teachers play in the two-way conversation.  Participants will learn how to interpret children's behavior, how to effectively teach social skills, how to develop an environment that supports cooperative and meaningful learning, and how to build partnerships with families.  This is a 3-hour course worth 0.3 CEUs.
