Challenging behavior is unlike any other subject. There is no magic formula, no right or wrong way to do things, no one correct answer to any given question, no one solution to any particular problem. Every teacher, every child, and every situation is unique; and each demands a thoughtful and intentional approach.
Understand what constitutes a challenging behavior, factors around challenging behavior and the message these behaviors serve.
Understand relationships come first and strategies to build them.
Understand that a well thought out environment metaphorically serves as the third teacher in the room.
Understand the parts of the brain and apply how the brain is tied to behavior while diving deeper into environmental triggers, child triggers and function of behavior.
