What Are Your Biggest Challenges?
Managing problematic behaviour is one of the biggest challenges for parents and educators. Many families and teachers want to know how to deal with persistent challenging behaviour.
Commonly used strategies such as praising, rewarding, redirecting, ignoring, reasoning, consequences, etc., may not be sufficient in resolving behaviour challenges with some children. Parents and teachers experiencing this problematic behaviour often feel overwhelmed and unsupported.

My son is autistic and non-verbal, and this has given me some fantastic ways to help him in situations where he is feeling overwhelmed.

Why I'm Running This Masterclass.
Educators and parents experience many situations where our children's behaviour is challenging.
As a mum and educator, I also face many situations like this.
Responding to difficult situations is part of parenting and teaching children.
When challenging behaviours occur, knowing what to do matters.
Our responses can help alleviate or worsen the situation without us even being aware.
In this Masterclass, I want to help you understand why problematic behaviour happens and how to respond to it caring and compassionately. But more importantly, how to support children so that they thrive at home and in school.
Please get in touch with me if you have any questions about this masterclass or want to know more about me.
I have listened to other webinars and lectures on behaviour management and in 1 hour you managed to give me more insight, tips and explanations than the rest of them put together.
Mairead O´Rourke | SNA
Finally, a realistic webinar with real-life examples that can actually be implemented. You gave examples which are similar to children in my class and it is so appreciated.
Amy Breslin | Teacher
I would recommend the course to anybody dealing with children that have additional needs because we all need to keep learning ways that help our children mature and be as independent as possible for the future.
