This webinar will be recorded and shared with everyone who registers. Once you register there is strictly no refund.

If you work as an SNA in a primary school and you witness many forms of challenging behaviour and you are looking for new, effective strategies – this webinar is for you. If you are still in training and need skills during your work experience - this webinar is for you. If you just graduated and wonder what you would say during an interview when asked what to do if a child has a tantrum on the floor - this webinar is for you. If you don't want to hear the definition of challenging behaviour but you do want to know what strategy will help you and the child in a special class, this webinar is for you. I will show you a different aspect of challenging behaviour and how we can reframe the name of this behaviour to change our attitude which will help us and the children under our care. The so-called ‘challenging behaviour’ is very often presented in special classes or early intervention - this webinar will explain why such behaviours occur and what to do in such cases. This webinar will show you what to do when on movement break or in a sensory room. During this webinar, you will be equipped with strategies from "The Son-Rise Program". I will help you identify triggers and underlying needs to finally share strategies for such behaviour. I will also share strategies for hidden anxiety in the classroom, defiant, tantrum and meltdowns, child out of seat, disorganised, disruptive, frustrations, inappropriate language & lying. I will share what I've gathered about challenging behaviour during my work as an SNA for 7 years working in ASD, Early Intervention and the mainstream classroom.

This webinar is for SNAs working in primary/secondary school, SNAs in training and SNAs who just graduated/SE Teachers.

This innovative webinar will provide a basic knowledge of nueroscience to empower SNAs in their role and help them to build trusting relationships with the children they work with. Play is the language of the chlid and when we connect through playful approaches, it can help to promote positive behaviour and alleviate stress. All behaviour is communication and feelings drive behaviours. When we can respond, rather than react, we can build a feeling of safety and trust, so the children can flourish in their environment. This webinar will provide useful actionable strategies and approaches that can be used immediately. There will also be a live Q&A to answer all of your questions.
