Limited Capacity full

Families are faced with many challenges on a daily basis but frequently the ones that have the most negative impacts on the family system are dealing with challenging behavior at home, school and out in the community. Are we able to get out the door, on time, without a meltdown? Could siblings please just play quietly while I make dinner? Time to clean up or get homework done? How about a trip to the grocery store or an unexpected change in the family routine? Not to mention bedtime! This workshop will be co-presented by Melisa Ruiz, a parent of children with special needs and also the Parent Representative on the Board of the Association of Positive Behavior Support and Kiki McGough, retired educator and mother of three and grandmother of a highly spirited preschooler. She is also the Parent Consultant at the Association of Positive Behavior Support. Using personal examples and the components of effective positive behavior support, participants will work together to analyze routines, identify appropriate strategies and approaches to prevent and respond to challenging behavior within the typical family routines at home and in the community. They will gain a variety of resources to support their children and partner with schools for success.
