Primary Speaker name:
In this session, we will discuss different options for classroom management and how they can benefit or challenge children with special needs. In the first part of the session, participants will learn about two key theories that drive classroom management: behaviorism and self-determination theory. Then, we will apply these theories, discussing strategies for building classroom community, teaching behavior, and designing experiences for children that promote success rather than failure. Time at the end will be allowed for questions about how to apply learning to participants’ specific classrooms and situations.
