About this FREE Webinar
Challenging behavior in the classroom is one of the most highly discussed topics in public education. Teachers frequently report that disruptive behavior is their greatest concern and has a significant impact on their job satisfaction. This session will focus on what teachers do best – facilitate student learning and teach students new skills. Direct instruction in social skills promotes skill development in pro-social behaviors and reduces challenging behavior. When students have social skills in their repertoire they don’t have to rely on challenging behavior.
- A better understanding of how social skill development can impact behavior
- Specific teaching strategies to promote social skill development in their classrooms
- Ideas for teaching social skills 1:1 and in groups
