Addressing Challenging Behavior in Early Childhood
Saturday, March 14 | 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Session 5: Workshops
The Montessori Method is wonderfully suited for children with exceptionalities, but sometimes guides can struggle to understand and meet their needs. In this session, the presenters will review ways to leverage the Montessori Method to interpret and apply behavioral strategies to normalize struggling children in the classroom. You will learn patterns of behavior, tactics for classroom management, and ideas for optimal preparation of the learning environment, all with the aim of peacefully including students with varying exceptionalities.
