47. Beyond Behavior Charts and Reward Systems

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 School Climate and Culture - CC

Audience: Grade K-12 general and special education teachers

Dates: 1/26/2018

We often seek strategies for dealing with students who exhibit challenging behavior. Behavior modification systems assume that the student requires motivation in order to change his/her behavior and that they can change their behavior if they only wanted to. However, 50 years of neuro-scientific research suggests that these challenging behaviors might actually be due to specific neuro-cognitive skill deficits, which can be taught.
Spend the day learning and practicing an evidence-based method effective in changing challenging behavior and actually rewiring the brain to build the missing cognitive skills causing the behavior. You will learn to assess for the missing skills and how to collaborate with the student in order to solve the problem behavior. This strategy has been successful with elementary, middle and high school students.

This program may be used to meet 5.5 hours toward CTLE requirements. Check with your district for eligibility.

Fee:
$192 per participant for CoSer 555 members

• Ebooks encourage students to read more and improve comprehension. Struggling or reluctant readers, learning challenged, second language learners and gifted readers can all benefit from this service




• The process is simple and easy to use, just choose and download ebooks




• Ebooks are portable, students can carry ebooks in their mobile devices, laptops, notebooks or any ebook reader, without worrying about weight
