What’s it about?
This workshop will focus on general behavioural issues and dealing with these for educators and issues they face in dealing with children with higher level behaviours. We will look at strategies that fit in with the Quality Frameworks, as well as develop strategies that can help in the day to day work with children.
Challenging behaviour arises due to a number of factors. The key focus is to consider these and support opportunities for children to engage in positive activities and interactions. This can assist children to learn better ways to engage and particulate in curricula and other activities.
The workshop will give participants an opportunity to discuss behavioural issues and what additional support or training may be required in relation to these complex issues.
