Full course description

About This Course

Many educators report that classroom discipline is their greatest challenge, yet early intervention and support for children at this level is crucial because it can interrupt the developmental pathway to antisocial behavior later in life. The Challenging Behaviors module will introduce participants to the Pyramid Model and explain how a tiered approach can provide universal support to all children. Participants will gain an understanding of developmentally appropriate prevention and discipline strategies. They will also learn how to create a behavior support team and generate a behavior support plan for those children with intensive behavior intervention needs.
