Kids need us to meet the unfulfilled need causing their problem behavior.

Behavior is the clue, not the problem.  

    

School Consulting

  • Education for administrators, teachers, and staff on the root causes of behavior problems including bullying, aggression, and child's loss of empathy, motivation, and social connection. 
  • Connecting with troubled students directly and through classroom observation to assess needs and better understand what their behavior is telling us.     
  • Writing a personalized learning plan for the whole child that supports success (academically, socially, emotionally) including children who've experienced trauma and neglect.  
  • Coaching and support for individual teachers and staff. Working with challenging behaviors in children is an opportunity for personal development.
