Our April SEN Event topic is: Behavior Management for the Inclusion Teacher Community
Challenging behaviors are among the most prevalent areas of difficulty in inclusive education. Many educators struggle with managing behaviors that challenge within their classroom or school environment. The inclusion teachers’ skills with classroom organization and behavior management can affect the emergence and persistence of behavior problems as well as the success of inclusive practice for their students.
Challenging behaviors are often misunderstood and the needs driving these behaviors, overlooked. This lack of understanding results in educators resorting to punitive and reactive interventions, which are not sustainable and do not lead to any long-term behavioral change. These types of interventions also result in additional stress and negative outcomes for both students and educators. This online event will guide SEN educators to think differently about challenging behaviors in the classroom, and to empower them to support and encourage students to take control over their behavioral choices.
Attendees of this online event will:
- Identify and understand the function of challenging behaviors in the classroom.
- Identify barriers to implementing classroom behavior management strategies.
- Learn practical ways of defusing and managing challenging behaviors
- Learn how to address behavior needs in student’s IEP’s.
