Child Behaviors for Parents and Caregivers
What you'll learn
- The four functions of behavior and how to address the different behaviors of your child
Do you ever wish there was a science to this parenting thing? Well you're in luck, because there is a Science of Human Behavior that can guide your parenting decisions. Raising children is not easy, but with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst as your instructor, you can be sure you will leave this class with the knowledge and skills to parent with confidence!
The key to avoiding problem behavior is to give the child another way to meet their needs. In this course, you will learn how to determine why a child might engage in problem behavior, and what you can do to help them feel better by meeting those needs in a more positive way.
You will spend the first portion of the course gaining an understanding of the four functions of behavior. You will learn how to identify the causes of your child's problem behavior.
Next, we will explore each of those functions, and what you as a caregiver can do to prevent most problem behaviors, and what to do on those increasingly rare occasions that they crop up anyway.
We hope you join us, so you can enjoy fewer moments of frustration and uncertainty, and more peaceful, pleasant moments with your child.
Who this course is for:
- Parents and caregivers
I graduated in 2006 with a degree in Special Education from the University of Texas at Austin. I went back to UT and in 2012 received my master’s degree in Developmental Disabilities and became a BCBA, Board Certified Behavior Analyst. I have taught special education in the public school setting for fourteen years. For eight of those years I have worked with 3-5 year olds with disabilities. I love working with families, and supporting families in the home with their child.
I have also worked in the private setting working with individuals with Autism in a one-on-one setting both in the home and in a clinical setting.
