The Explosive Child-January 10, 2020

Although this training is next year, it fills up fast. Adapted from Dr. Ross W. Greene’s book, The Explosive Child, this workshop tackles challenges in dealing with chronically inflexible and easily frustrated students. Participants will gain a knowledge of possible triggers and causes for students’ difficult behavior, and how to better manage the classroom when challenging students act out. This workshop will challenge participants to see things from a different view, and better understand the root causes behind the students’ behavior in an effort to work together collaboratively with both students and parents to find meaningful and lasting solutions for everyone involved.

How to Organize Your Child’s IEP Binder

Making an IEP binder is a great way to keep information organized and at the ready when you need it. An IEP binder can help you prepare for IEP meetings and stay up to date on your child’s progress.
