Promoting Positive Discipline and Handling Challenging Behavior - Part I and II
As a parent, have you struggled with your child’s:
- Sensory-seeking behavior — spinning, bumping, throwing
- Seemingly ignoring others
- Extremely introverted behavior
- Extremely rigid behavior or demands
- High activity level
- Difficulty with transitions
- Difficulty sharing or turn-taking
Parents of children with disabilities often request assistance from professionals to help them with a range of behavioral issues such as these. Parents, as the resident expert on their child and as their child’s first teacher, are in a unique position to participate in the behavior intervention process. In this two-part workshop, with guest speaker Cynthia Landes, MPH, MA, ET/P, parents will learn how to:
- Use descriptive, fact-based language to describe their child’s behavior
- Create a behavior log to help identify patterns
- Utilize limit-setting and consistent discipline strategies
