The What, Why, and How of Addressing Problem Behaviors with Early Learners: A Behavior Analytic approach with Maureen Rushton, BCaBA
Are you tired of giving the same consequences or having the same talks with your child, only to see no change in behavior? Do you feel like you are walking on eggshells when you take your child to the grocery store or to a play date, praying that a tantrum does not erupt? Understanding and dealing with your child’s tantrums and other problematic behaviors can be overwhelming. Learn how the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis can increase your chances for a more successful outcome when addressing your child’s inappropriate behaviors.
This informal group discussion will be lead by Maureen Rushton, a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst and Behavior Consultant for The Shafer Center for Early Intervention.
‘Why Do They Do That?’ What We Now Know About Developing Healthy Brains with Linda Lombardo Ph.D.
We are learning more every day about the human brain and how it develops. Brain-based explanations of developmental behaviors and issues help us not only better understand the babies and children with whom we work, but also develop strategies for nurturing healthy, happy childhood experiences. This workshop will present current research in simple and practical terms and generate ideas for applying neuroscience to everyday life with kids.
For more than forty years, Linda has worked with children and families in a variety of roles- as a teacher, school principal, family counselor, and yes- as a live-in caregiver. Currently, She is the director of Lighthouse, Inc., a youth and family services center in Catonsville, Maryland.
