Overview

Figure out the “why” of student behaviour and how to develop strategies that teach adaptive and effective ways for students to get their needs met.

 

As many schools have teams to develop and implement Behaviour Support Plans, understanding the ‘why’  of the behaviour is a critical component to the development of strategies that are chosen to help improve them. In this full-day workshop the participants will first learn what behavioural functions are, and how these are different than just looking at how a behaviour looks or sounds. They will learn the multitude of ways in which teams can figure out the ‘why’, and how the functions may be different in different context, situations, or change across time. Finally, in the second half of the workshop, participants will learn which strategies are generally recommended to start with that respond to each different function in order to teach the student adaptive and effective ways to get their needs met.

 

This workshop is appropriate for K-12 classroom teachers, resource teachers, learning support teachers, case managers, educational assistants, other professionals, and parents who want to figure out the ‘why’ of student behaviour and how to develop strategies that teach adaptive and effective ways for students to get their needs met. It may be beneficial for participants who can attend as a team supporting one or more students. However, it is not required to attend as a team, and individual attendees will take away tools and strategies to implement within their respective teams after the workshop.
