Some questions are often bothering the parents and the teachers. For example, why doesn’t my child listen to me? Why does my student walk around the classroom while others are sitting in a circle? Why does my student always use a high voice in my class? Challenging behavior can be “challenging” to deal with.
On 15th and 16th June 2019, LIH Olivia’s Place organized a Behavior Management Training class for 15 people. The participants included parents, teachers, and shadow teachers (i.e. learning aids). Lee ChunMae, the Board Certified Behavior Analyst, walked the trainees through the two-day training. The training aims to enable parents and teachers with knowledge and skills to address a child’s challenging behaviors. The first-day training included theory introduction about ABA, Function Behavior, ABC’s of Behavior, Behavior Assessment and Functional Reinforcement, and Punishment & Extinction. On day two, the training goes deeper and more practical with practices on behavior intervention, assessing and identifying skills to teach managing stress and feeding problems.
This training is based on the Early Intensive Behavior Intervention (EIBI), which is an evidence-based program and has been proven to be effective for children with autism and other challenging behaviors. Having worked with the international schools in Shanghai over the last few years, we noticed that there is a need for shadow teachers to support students to fit in to the school. We developed this training to support the attendees to have a better understanding of children with difficult behaviors and become more capable of addressing their behavior. The shadow teacher trainees can also get 1 to 1 coaching with our specialists to become more competent in their work with children.
The training was delivered in Chinese with bilingual powerpoint slides. It can be delivered in English upon request. Contact us to get to know about our future workshops or book a workshop for your institution.
