Full-Day Workshop

Seminar: Behaviour Management in the Classroom

Behaviours of concern are less likely to occur when the classroom is structured to maximise success for the students. The relationships between staff and students, and the use of powerful reinforcement systems, are also critical. This workshop will address the physical structure of the classroom, the use of visual supports, establishing relationships, and implementing reinforcement systems. The classroom as a whole will be considered, but individual differences between students will also be assessed.

This evidence-informed workshop is designed to increase the participant’s understanding of the process of establishing an effective learning environment to reduce the likelihood of behaviours of concern.

Dates:3 Jun 2022 (Fri)
Time:9.00am - 5.00pm (Singapore Standard Time GMT+0800)
Venue:Live Online Training
