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
  • Meltdowns

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:

 

  1. Use descriptive, fact-based language to describe their child’s behavior
  2. Create a behavior log to help identify patterns
  3. Utilize limit-setting and consistent discipline strategies
