Diagnostic Center North: For Paraeducators: Behavior Supports in the Classroom: How to Implement Effective Reinforcement Strategies

This training will increase paraeducators' understanding of why students engage in problem behavior. Strategies for intervention with problem behavior will be discussed. Participants will brainstorm how to intervene with behaviors as support staff in the classroom. Video examples will be shared and participants will brainstorm appropriate interventions. Evidence-based behavior intervention strategies will be covered that match the cause of behaviors to effective strategies across all ages and severities of behavior.

    Participants Will:
      • Increase their understanding of why students engage in undesired behaviors.
      • Be provided with specific explanations of how to implement behavior strategies.
      • Leave with more ideas and strategies on how to support problem behaviors.
