Jeff Hopkins presented at our Spring advocacy conference on inquiry based learning as inclusion. His insights were valuable and we are certain this workshop will be equally so. We hope you will be able to make it to see him speak at Connecting to Strengthen Advocacy in Education, our 5th education advocacy conference held October 18th and 19th at the Civic Hotel in Surrey, BC.
Tickets available here:
1. How to use language that references behaviour function, helping schools/IEP teams create better behaviour plans
2. How to better advocate for kids who need behaviour support and not just monitoring and contracts
3. How to help schools consider the balanced and restorative approach to discipline, cutting down on recidivism and ostracization, and increasing school community safety
This workshop will present the basics of Functional Behaviour Assessment, helping participants see the flaws of the “reward and punishment” paradigm, and also to see how schools can support learners better when they understand the function of a behaviour, rather than just focusing on the behaviour itself. This approach, along with a broader restorative approach to discipline in a school, makes behaviour something that is taught and not just expected.
