DESCRIPTION:  Working with students who have multiple challenges can be difficult as their behaviour is sometimes unpredictable. Add to that a limited ability to use language to communicate and situations can quickly go over the top. This session will help participants to understand the role of emotions in behaviour. Then we will look at three primary emotions that are most often experienced and how they are expressed behaviourally. This will help in interpreting what a student may be trying to communicate non-verbally. Finally, we will look at ways to intervene both in the moment and also proactively. When we can recognize and acknowledge how a student is feeling or when we can provide opportunities for emotional release, both learning and behaving will improve. 

PRESENTED BY:  Eva de Gosztonyi and Catherine Korah
