Behaviour is communication...but what does it actually mean?

That is truly the question....and also what makes behaviours so challenging.   I'll be honest, they can mean 100 different things!

The approach in this training to supporting the child, understanding the behaviour and building an approach to solve it, is based on our mindsets, a strong image of the child, using the child's strengths and knowing that it will take time.

LOOSE PARTS, SCHEMAS, BEHAVIOURS...OH MY!

BACK

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

You'll develop a growth mindset & learn the 4 lenses to view behaviours through that will enable you to gather research and develop a strength based approach to solving the behaviour
You'll be able to observe and identify the actions/behaviours children exhibit that are connected to schemas and know how to use loose parts to aid children’s self-regulation during play.
You'll engage in reflective work that provokes deep thought and dialogue around connecting the 100 languages of children to viewing and interpreting behaviours

Veronica is so easy to listen to and shares her information in such a way that it just draws you in and gets you excited to learn more by using props, videos, real life scenarios, etc. She is very knowledgeable and better yet passionate about her work, and it shows! If you ever get the chance to learn from her, don’t miss the opportunity- you won’t regret it!”
