Understanding the function behind behaviour and how to assist children to develop skills.
Venue: DCLP, 5 Shelmore Drive, Dingle, L8 4YL
10am – 2pm

Behaviour management often depends on children adapting their behaviour due to consequences. Often when behaviour is functional this approach will only escalate behaviour due to the child having no other way to meet their needs. By understanding the function of behaviour you can replace inappropriate behaviour with appropriate behaviour that meets the child’s needs.
