A Toolkit for Working with School Age Children with Challenging Behaviours
Wednesday, October 16, 2019
6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
*New for School Age Children
We all wish there was a quick fix to manage challenging behaviour. There is no magic wand to make them disappear. There are strategies that with practice will help us guide children through difficult situations. We will discuss behaviour guidance strategies that provide practical support and help school age children develop skills to solve problems in a respectful way, while enhancing their social skills.
