rethink | 11/09/2017
Challenging behaviors occur with students, whether they are in general education or special education settings. When such behaviors occur, it disrupts learning and the routine/ schedule and there is can be a risk of harm to one’s self or others. This session will address how to manage such behaviors by identifying and implementing the appropriate antecedent and consequence strategies.
At the end of this presentation, participants will:
- Understand the functions of behavior
- Have a toolbox of strategies for managing behaviors
- Discuss effective tools to determine which evidenced-based strategies would work best
