Proactive Approaches to Challenging Behaviours

Presenter: Debra Smith

In this workshop on Proactive Approaches to Challenging Behaviours, participants will explore the rationale behind behaviours, what they are and why they occur. We will explore strategies and different approaches to working with each unique child that presents us with challenging behaviours. Participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences as we all learn together how best to mitigate behaviours BEFORE they occur.
