About this learning opportunity

The first part of the session will assist you in understanding behaviour and how it varies in the classroom, school, and community setting. We will discuss the function of behaviour and how to address it using best practices strategies. Throughout the session, we will discuss skill building, learning adaptations, functional skills, and social skills. The session will provide the necessary information to support the students that you work with using thoughtful and student-specific strategies.

Follow-up Webinar (March 10 from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm):

The follow up session will use real-life data to develop a plan full of student-specific strategies tailored to your student's needs. It will also focus on answering questions from the previous session.
