Play!! an Intervention for Challenging Behavior

Children and Youth Partnership, PLAY!! An Intervention for Challenging Behavior
Event Description: 

Description:  Challenging behaviors come in many different formats and many different levels of intensity in preschool children. A significant percentage of teachers report more challenging behaviors in their classroom and frustration in their knowledge and ability to work with these children. At the same time, skills once expected in kindergarten are being pushed down into preschool, so demands on teachers and children are higher.  Play is disappearing.  Forty years of research says play equals learning.  In this session, we will PLAY as we discuss the importance of play for all children, how play can serve as an intervention for children with challenging behavior, Dr. Stanley Greenspan's Floor-time concept, how play meets developmentally appropriate learning goals, and creative ways teachers can explain the importance of play to parents.  

Presenter:  Pam Pace, Healthy Social Behaviors Education Specialist.  

Date/Time:  Monday & Tuesday, May 22 & 23 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm.
