This workshop is part 1 of the 3 part Leadership for Inclusive Practices Conference Series. It is highly recommended that participants enroll in all 3 days, however each day can be taken as a stand-alone learning event. This session will focus on the following learning objectives: 1) How different explanations for and interpretations of challenging behavior can lead to dramatically different approaches to intervention; 2) The various cognitive skills that are central to compliant behavior at school; 3)Why conventional reward and punishment procedures may not be effective for many students with challenging behavior; 4) The basic underpinnings of the Collaborative Problem Solving approach to school discipline. Following an interactive keynote with Dr. Ablon, Matt Holloway from DESE will review resources and priorities at the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The day will conclude with an "unconference" - through which participants will organically generate topics and engage in participant-driven learning to help them bring their learning forward to action in their schools.
