Do you work with students who exhibit explosive behaviours that interfere with their ability to effectively and efficiently navigate their environment? They appear willful, obnoxious, over reactive, and unfeeling. They lose control of their ability to cope or regulate their behaviour, which can send them spiralling into a gut wrenching meltdown.
Watch expert Kathy Morris, M.Ed., B.S., and learn proven strategies and techniques to help students with ADHD, ODD, autism, executive functioning, learning disabilities, anxiety, and depression de-escalate before a full blown meltdown ensues, developing self-control and self-management skills to prevent future meltdowns and learn appropriate/replacement behaviours. Dozens of strategies will be taught through dynamic video case examples and demonstrations. “Teach them in the way they learn” will be a mantra throughout the recording.
