Understanding development and behaviour in early childhood
May 6, 2021 - May 6, 2021
Join Berry Street and Thrive by Five for an online forum discussing the value of teaching self-regulation in tackling challenging behaviours and helping children to grow up safe, thriving and hopeful.
In this event, we will explore how to best support and teach self-regulation to children who exhibit challenging behaviour in response to significant adversity or developmental trauma.
- why children may exhibit challenging behaviour
- identifying the warning signs of challenging behaviour
- ways that parents can encourage their children to self-regulate their reactions; and
- how we can address this in the classroom to ensure that children are ready to learn from teachers who are equipped to nurture them.
