Are you a 1:1 Crisis Para or a paraprofessional that works with children that exhibit challenging behaviors? In this one-day workshop, we will examine how learning about the brain can help us better understand our students’ behavior and how we can become more effective at both preventing and de-escalating challenging behaviors at school. We will cover data collection to support FBA/BIP development; executive functioning; trauma and its effects on learning and behavior; calming exercises you can teach your students; and self-care to help relieve your own stress.

This workshop can be a great follow-up to Paraprofessionals: Crucial Members of the Classroom Team or a standalone day.
