  No One's Alone: Supporting Early Childhood Teachers and Children When Challenging Behavior Occurs 

We may not always be able to control all the behaviors that children display. However, we can control how we proactively develop supports for both children and adults when challenging behaviors occurs. Presently, children who display disruptive behavior receive less positive feedback from teachers, spend less time on tasks, and receive less instruction. In an effort to improve the response to children, the goal of states, communities and programs must be to build supports to ensure that no child, no family and no teacher is asked to "go it alone." We will explore models, approaches, and strategies that work to build these supports.

For a fuller description, please review the conference registration brochure.
