This Session is Full. Please Choose Another Session to Attend.


Challenging behavior is a form of communication and when young children engage in challenging behavior, it serves a purpose or function for them. In order to effectively address the behavior and support children in the development of more appropriate skills, we need to understand what they are trying to tell us. This session will discuss the communicative function of behavior and consider how educators and families can alter the environmental context to support children in communicating their message in more appropriate ways.
