As a support to the 10 English School Boards of Quebec, the CEBM aims to help boards and their staff to find effective and developmentally friendly interventions for working with students who experience significant behavioural challenges in the school setting.
Play is not urgent. It will not wake a child up in the middle of the night like a bad dream or a bladder in need of release. Play isn’t something that hijacks a child’s attention like an empty stomach in need of food or an injury in need of first aid.
Our wish is that this site will inspire those working with students in our schools to try new ways of helping them to manage the daily demands of being in school. We hope that you will find much here that confirms your intuitions. And when you are looking for new ideas, we hope you will find some that will re-energize you in your role with students, especially those with challenging behaviours.
