Course Description
This two day course is designed to meet the needs of teachers who experience challenging behaviour in the classroom setting. The course aims to support teachers in understanding challenging behaviour and to examine why students engage in this behaviour. The course also explores strategies and interventions we can choose to prevent and manage challenging behaviour. In day two we look at our understanding of social skills and why pupils with SEN have difficulty developing effective social skills. We also explore effective assessment of social skills. Finally approaches to teaching social skills will be outlined and discussed.
