The National Center on Quality Teaching and Learning NCQTL is pleased to present a live rebroadcast of Teachers Choice! Digging into Challenging Behaviors, Part 2. It is part of the Teacher Time series of webinars for Head Start teachers. For those new to Teacher Time, it is an opportunity to hear directly from early childhood education experts on topics unique to the joys and challenges that teachers face every day.
Live rebroadcasts are previously recorded webinars that include a live discussion. You will be able to ask questions and interact via a chat box with the hosts, Kristin Ainslie and Dawn Williams. You also will receive a certificate of attendance if you complete an evaluation about your experience with the rebroadcast.
When given a choice of topics, our teaching audience chose challenging behaviors. Join NCQTL on Monday, July 14 at 3 p.m. EDT for our second live rebroadcast. In Part 1, we focused on understanding challenging behaviors. In Part 2, Dr. Gail Joseph shares more ways you can help children replace their old challenging behaviors with new skills and behaviors.
Dr. Joseph is an associate professor and director of Early Childhood and Families Studies at the University of Washington, and co-director of NCQTL. She has had experience as a Head Start teacher, teacher trainer, and mental health specialist. Dr. Joseph is a national consultant in promoting evidence-based social-emotional practices with young children.
Topics for the webinar include:
- Prevention strategies—How to make events and interactions that trigger challenging behavior easier for the child to manage, and how to put your focus on prevention
- Replacement skills—How to teach new skills children can use to replace their old challenging behaviors
- Responses—How to change our response when challenging behavior occurs so the childs behavior is not maintained or continued and new skills can be learned
Here are a few resources to help us dig deeper into preventing challenging behaviors:
- Head Start Center for Inclusion HSCI Classroom Visuals and Supports
- Inventory of Practices for Promoting Childrens Social and Emotional Competence
- Practical Strategies for Teachers and Caregivers
- Tips and Ideas for Making Visuals to Support Young Children with Challenging Behavior
