Positive Behavior Supports - Building Relationships and Identifying Feelings (Via Zoom)
Having a good relationship with children is the foundation for encouraging positive behavior. In this training we will discuss how to build strong relationships with children through intentional positive descriptive acknowledgements, clear expectations, visual schedules, and expanding on children’s emotional literacy. We will look at some visuals that support positive relationships and participants will begin to create visuals for their own use. To access and work on the handouts, participants will need a google account, which they can set up for free at https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/27441?hl=en . You do not have to have gmail to create an account.
