The 2-hour workshop will focus on:

  • Functions of Behaviour: determining the reasons for particular behaviour being demonstrated by children.
  • Responding to your child’s challenging behaviour to minimise its occurrence, based on the specific function or trigger.
  • How to conduct a behavioural analysis to help determine the trigger for a behaviour and the most appropriate response.
  • Bribery versus behavioural contracts.
  • Discussion regarding practical strategies to encourage positive behaviours.
