SEND - The Building Blocks of Behaviour - seeking connection not control (15 Nov 2022)


SEND - The Building Blocks of Behaviour - seeking connection not control

This interactive online course is an opportunity for us to explore one of the biggest topics in early childhood - behaviour. Developing relational approaches can be difficult when we are faced with lots of different emotions, feelings and behaviours. This course addresses some of the key ways in which we can develop boundaries that help us to connect with rather than control children. Through the two sessions you will come to understand;

  • What is meant by developmentally appropriate behaviour, and how to understand in the context of expressing needs.
  • The differences between top-down and bottom-up behaviours, and why we must be flexible in behaviour support. 
  • The importance of helping children to move through moods.
  • How to move beyond correcting and controlling behaviour, but instead connecting with the behaviour, and therefore the child.
  • Why wellbeing and well-doing is crucial in behaviour support. 
  • The Behaviour in children aged 2 to 6 years

This course will include a digital workbook, certificate, and you will complete some interactive gap tasks.

Delivered byKerry Murphy who is an Early Years SEND Specialist and has worked with  a local authority.
