What Lies Beneath: Why We Should Tune In to Challenging Behaviors Instead of Time Out
January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$30.00
Presented by noted SLP, Consultant, & Speaker, Jessie Ginsburg, MS, CCC-SLP
When we see challenging behaviors in children, we are so quick to think, “How can I get rid of this behavior?” However, we should be asking, “What is this behavior telling us about the child?” Whether working remotely or in person, don’t let behaviors work against you. Instead, make them work for you.
The behaviors are the tip of the iceberg – they are what we see on the surface and typically what we focus on. When in reality, it’s much more important for us to look at what lies beneath. What is this behavior telling us about the child’s sensory processing, self-regulation, and emotional state? And based on what we know about the child’s social, emotional, and cognitive skills, how can we help the child regulate, relate, and think logically?
In this webinar you will learn how to use the iceberg analogy as a tool for assessing challenging behaviors, and then how to use a relationships-based approach to improve a child’s regulation, engagement, and communication. Don’t let behaviors work against you – make them work for you. Behaviors bring us valuable insight into a child’s mind and body. We just have to learn how to interpret them. It is only then that we can tune in to the child’s real needs and build deeper, more meaningful connections. To register, visit www.readingwithtlc.com
