Positive Behavior Management speaks to the fact that all difficult behavior is not the result of poor choices. Sometimes children aren’t making poor choices but rather have unmet needs that we don’t understand. In order to meet these needs, we must have a basic understanding of what they are. The course includes several videos introducing books to use with the children to help them understand special needs in themselves or in their friends or family members.  Course length  – 2.0 hours.
This course helps answer the following questions:
  • What is sensory processing disorder?
  • What is autism?
  • What is dyslexia?
  • What is executive functioning disorder?
  • How can trauma affect children?
  • What are self-regulation problems?
  • What is proprioception?
  • How can I help children dealing with these issues?


Participants who successfully complete this course will:
  • Have a basic understanding of certain special needs they may encounter in children in their care.
  • Know what to look for when assessing whether a child in their care may have a special need.
  • Have the tools to better help the children in their care that have special needs.
