WASHBURN ACADEMY: Beyond Behavior Management: Empowering Teachers to Connect with ALL Students
***ADVANCED REGISTRATION REQUIRED! Register by June 9th to reserve your spot!***
Whenever I’ve taught classes about students with special needs, the resounding reaction from regular education teachers has been, “But these are great strategies for ALL students.” How do we take what we know from special education and connect with kids who may not be identified with a disability but still have some of the same needs? This question is at the heart of why schools are focusing on school wide proactive behavior intervention and supports (PBIS). The most effective educators understand that preventing behaviors and empowering students to change their behavior is essential in creating classroom community and increasing academic achievement.
This course will pull information from what we know about how anxiety, depression, attention difficulties, hyperactivity, and social disorders and apply it to your daily classroom practice. Resources are limited and the best way to increase the success of students who are struggling is to empower the teachers who spend the most time with them. The majority of challenging behaviors come from a skill deficit or an unmet need. This class will help you identify those needs in a proactive way so you can connect with the student and identify strategies that are more likely to be successful.
