Teaching and learning reflect a beautiful and miraculous dance of sorts. Success requires appropriate behaviors and healthy interactions. Besides traditional learning difficulties, social-emotional and behavioral interactions are often impacted by the presence of special needs in the home, causing added anxiety and frustration. This workshop will help us learn to study and evaluate undesirable behaviors and develop strategies to redirect, modify, or extinguish them. Understanding behavior, setting and communicating reasonable boundaries and expectations for the long-haul can help build a better teaching environment and provide for future opportunities for success.
