Learn how the "why" behind student behavior can be taught through the lens of applied behavior analysis, while taking into consideration the student's potential trauma history. Individualized interventions that focus on the answer to this "why" leads to improved outcomes of behavior change in and out of the classroom. Participants will explore a trauma informed approach to function based interventions and behavior change.
Areas of focus:
- Four functions of behavior
- Trauma as the 5th function
- Interventions specific to each function
- Strategies on remaining trauma informed while delivering consequences
