  • February 13, 2019 - Understanding & Managing Challenging Behaviour 2 and 1 other event

    9:00 pm

    Category: WorkshopsUnderstanding & Managing Challenging Behaviour 2

    **Participants must first complete Understanding & Managing Challenging Behaviour 1**

    Challenging behaviour can be disruptive, it can be an impediment to learning important skills, and it can interfere with the development of meaningful relationships with peers. In the last class, participants were introduced to the behavioural interpretation of challenging behaviour, why it happens, and the elements in our environment that influence learning. Today we will use that knowledge to begin developing behaviour support plans of our own to help the people we care about to reach their fullest potential.

  • February 20, 2019 - Effective Goals and Teaching Strategies and 1 other event

    9:00 pm

    Category: WorkshopsEffective Goals and Teaching Strategies

    We are usually pretty good at identifying big-picture, long-term goals for the people we support (e.g. more independence, meaningful relationships, academic skills, etc.) It can be much more difficult; however, to establish a step-by-step process to reach those goals that takes into account the individual's strengths, preferences, and unique challenges. Today, effective teaching strategies will be introduced to help participants set goals, teach important skills, and remain optimistic about the future.
