Facilitating Individualized Interventions to Address Challenging Behavior

In early education programs we expect that children will use emotion and physical means to express themselves (e.g., crying, gesturing, pushing), as they do not have the language or social development to express their needs and desires in a conventional fashion.

As early educators and families we anticipate that challenging behavior will occur and we use those occasions to help children learn. We help the developing child in learning the language and behaviors needed to navigate the complexities of a social world.
