Webinar 2: Classroom Culture and Classroom Environment when Supporting Pupil Behaviour- Wednesday, 4th October 2023 @ 7pm
Throughout this webinar, teachers will identify pro-active teaching strategies for improving classroom management and dealing with challenging behaviours in the classroom.

The course will explore how behaviour is a form of communication and how you respond to this form of communication is key.

This support model assists in responding to children’s needs, from mild to more severe needs. Following this we will discuss referrals to outside agencies for children with behavioural difficulties. Specific interventions to support children with behavioural difficulties will be examined. We will examine the function of challenging behaviour and assessments to support you in determining this.

  • Understand the Continuum of Support and its role in assessment and intervention, with reference to A Continuum of Support (NEPS, 2007) and Continuum of Support resource pack (NEPS, 2007) for supporting learners with BD
  • Appreciate the role of outside agencies e.g. NEPs, CAMHS, HSE etc for supporting learners with BD
