No More Meltdowns Book study/training

About the book study/training Do you find yourself addressing the same behaviors over and over? Are behaviors interfering with your child's everyday life? If so, join us a book study and training combined. We will read a great book called No More Meltdowns by Jed Baker. This book study / training will allow us to take a deeper look at what causes meltdown for our children and steps that we can take to reduce the frequency of the meltdowns. We will learn de escalation strategies, how to provide positive behavior supports and you will leave with the start of a behavior plan for your child/student if you complete the work. This is appropriate for children of all ages. Besides the 1 hours meeting time per week, you will need to plan to allow an additional hour to complete weekly reading and take data at different points.
