    August 6, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

    Sponsored by- AbleNet Problem behaviors exhibited by students interfere with their learning, interactions with peers and adults, and school success.

These punitive consequences do not really work because the challenging behaviors continue. Part 1 will provide step-by step guidance on how to apply the seven contemplative discipline steps, including how to understand student behavior through data collection, and use the Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence (ABC) method.
