Learning Level: Intermediate

Language: English

Course Description

At what point do behaviors become a concern within the classroom? This workshop will assist you in the understanding of the difference between typical behaviors in the classroom from ages 2-5 and the signs of developmental delays through behaviors as well as when the difference occurs. Knowing the signs of a developmental delay directly corresponds with the awareness of how to best assist the child in the environment they are in, the peers they interact with, and the learning process within a classroom environment. We know that as infant/toddler and preschool teachers we often see extreme behaviors. It often leads to questioning the "why" behind these behaviors. That specific "why" is crucial in how to navigate the behaviors for that child. Is this child experiencing a sensory challenge? Possible processing challenge? Are they not able to express or understand simple requests thus leading to a possible speech and language delay? Are they having a difficult time managing with their self-regulation skills? These questions are pertinent in getting children the help they need when experiencing possible delays.
Since every behavior has a reason or a motivation behind it, the key to breaking the silence is to identify the root of the problem. All behavior is maintained, changed, or shaped by the consequences of that behavior. There are four main functions or reinforcers that sustain behaviors. These include: Escape/Avoidance, Attention Seeking, Seeking Access to Materials, and Sensory Stimulation. By first identifying why the behavior is happening, you will be able to know which teaching strategies will be effective for managing, changing or extinguishing that particular behavior. Some of the most successful behavior modification strategies are basic in nature, while others can be more time consuming and require an increased amount of effort by a group of individuals. Whatever the case may be, as teachers we need to set up our classrooms so that all students have the opportunity to be successful; which means recognizing the individual needs of students and making modifications or accommodations within our classrooms.
