Session Dates

Friday March 03, 2023 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM - Hershey Lodge and Convention Center


Supporting students with challenging behavior is complicated and requires a school-wide effort. Schools and students benefit when all staff are trained in the basics of understanding behavior and behavioral intervention. Training all staff creates a common language and skill set across administrators, teachers, and staff for supporting students with challenging behavior. Schools also need personnel with more intensive training in behavioral intervention to support students with challenging behavior. This session will present a training model and free training resources, including e-learning modules to help build the knowledge and skills of your staff to support students with challenging behavior.

Target Audience

General education and special education administrators and teachers, paraprofessionals, school psychologists, professional development staff, and families of students with disabilities are encouraged to attend.
