WHAT IS COVERED IN SESSIONS WITH PARENTS?

These principles are:

  6. Adapting to having a child with a disability

In this seminar, practitioners build on the foundation seminar and show parents how they can use the positive parenting principles to promote their child's development by teaching them new skills and behaviors.

The six key steps to teach a new skill are:

  1. Choosing a skill to teach
  2. Breaking the skill into steps
  3. Choosing rewards
  4. Deciding on when and where to teach
  5. Using effective teaching strategies
  6. Keeping track and review

Seminar 3: Changing Problem Behaviour into Positive Behaviour - Feb 20th, 6:30pm - 8:00pm

Parents are often uncertain how to manage problem behaviour in ways that help children learn alternative and more adaptive behaviour to take its place. Parents are introduced to the six key steps of how to do this.

The steps covered include:

  • Tracking the behaviour

  • Changing events that occur before the problem
  • Encouraging alternative behaviour
  • Removing accidental rewards
  • Putting the plan into action
