Managing Challenging Behaviour: Strategies for Coaching Families in Remote Learning
This one-day workshop will cover fundamental aspects of understanding and managing challenging behaviour. Basic strategies for preventing, responding to, and teaching replacements to challenging behaviour will be introduced, with an emphasis on strategies applicable to the remote-learning situation that school teams and families are currently navigating. Given the role of families in this new way of learning, time will be spent addressing the ways that school teams can support families via remote coaching. Basic behaviour management strategies (such as providing predictability, promoting functional communication, and using reinforcement) will be reviewed with application and examples relevant to the home learning environment.
Audience: This training is directed toward employees of BC school districts and independent schools. This includes teachers, paraprofessionals, and other educational staff supporting students with ASD at any grade level (K-12) in developing their social, academic, and adaptive skills.
