There is often a cycle of failure for students with behavioral challenges. This workshop focuses on interventions for students who exhibit challenging behaviors (e.g. aggression, self-injury, tantrums). Identifying the function of behavior is discussed, with an emphasis on educational strategies that help students learn alternate behaviors that can lead to long-term change. Information on due process rights of children in the discipline process is also provided.
