Challenging behavior is one of the biggest issues early childhood educators face every day. Most often these behaviors are caused by challenges presented by the social and physical environment, yet often the approach is to "fix" the child rather than "fix" the factors that contribute to the behavior. This Turn-Key training program will provide the knowledge base and practical strategies teachers need to strive to minimize challenging behavior in the classroom. Watch the following video to learn more.

This innovative, comprehensive ten-lesson video course helps teachers minimize challenging behavior by promoting these positive classroom practices:
