Addressing Aggressive Student Behavior

Special needs students experience many benefits as well as challenges in the classroom. Some students may resist efforts of teachers and SRPs to support and guide them. This resistance may be shown in passive ways or in more aggressive ways, such as acting out, tantrums, or even throwing objects. This seminar will focus on strategies for managing the behavior of students who demonstrate aggressive and disruptive behaviors. Participants will discuss the need to teach students to take responsibility for their own behavior, review a plan for ensuring they have the knowledge and skills to successfully change their behaviors, and proactive strategies for addressing specific misbehaviors. Confrontation strategies and strategies such as redirection, cause and effect and overcorrection will be explored and practiced. This workshop was cancelled earlier due to weather.
