Responding to Student Needs NOT Behaviors

It seems an increasing number of students exhibit problem behaviors in school. Problem behavior is not an elaborate plan to ruin the teacher’s day or year but is most often a protective mechanism to avoid failure and or social anxiety. Too often teachers are sucked into unnecessary conflict, fulfilling the student's disconnect with school and success. This workshop helps teachers decode student behaviors and provides the insight to meet the student's underlying needs thus clearing a path to academic success.
