Challenging Behaviour in Young Children, with Author Barbara Kaiser


Morning Workshop: Understanding Children’s Behaviour

Have you ever continued to respond in the same way to a child’s challenging behaviour even though you knew your approach wasn’t working? You can respond effectively to a child’s challenging behaviour when you have the appropriate knowledge, strategies, and skills. Everything about your teaching - how you approach and respond to the children, set up your room, choose and present activities, even your knowledge of child development and theory - filters through the prism of your own emotions, family background, education, temperament, beliefs, values, and culture. When you understand yourself, you will know which behaviours push your buttons, and recognize that a child’s challenging behaviour is rooted in biological and environmental factors and not a desire to ruin your day.

Afternoon Workshop: Preventing and Responding Effectively to a Child’s Challenging Behaviour

Every challenging behaviour can be thought of as a child’s solution to a problem and a form of communication. This workshop provides strategies for preventing and addressing a child’s challenging behaviour effectively. Challenging behaviour can be prevented when teachers create a positive social climate and a responsive learning environment. Social and emotional skills provide a foundation for safe and positive learning, and enhance children’s ability to make better decisions, form friendships and most of all feel good about themselves. When educators understand why a child behaves in a particular way, how to figure out what he or she needs, and how to use evidence-based, proven-effective strategies to meet those needs it is possible to respond effectively to inappropriate behaviour.

Registration fee includes a light breakfast, morning and afternoon workshops and a networking lunch (please note - The cost does not include a copy of the book Challenging Behavior in Young Children; however you may order a copy if desired by contacting the ECCDC.)
