Trust-Based Relational Intervention in our Classrooms

Behavior is the language of unmet needs. When children feel stressed, anxious, hungry, frightened or any number of other big feelings, they often express themselves through unwanted behaviors. Our students often don't have the tools to express their needs or don't have an adult they trust to express them to.

In challenging situations with students practice pausing before reacting and consider what things are possibly affecting both you and the student in this interaction. If you know a student is facing some outside factors that may be affecting his or her behavior, please send us a referral, and we will assist in any way we can.
