Practical Ideas and Strategies
You have probably noticed an increase in the number of students with highly challenging emotional and behavioral disabilities. Today, it is no secret that classrooms can be a challenging environment for learning and teaching. Many students are coming to school and exhibiting difficult behaviors such as anxiety, fear, lack of motivation, and mood swings. An inability to focus or excessive movement is also a problem with many students. Some exhibit anti-social behaviors or violate the rights of other students. Students with challenging behaviors cannot be managed through the usual intervention strategies. What can be done?
This outstanding seminar is designed to offer K-12 teachers powerful solutions and techniques for dealing with challenging students and the problems they face. Your knowledge and skills will be increased and both you and your students will experience greater success.
Cindy Jones, an exceptional educator and presenter, will share classroom-proven ideas, techniques and strategies she has successfully used with students with behavior and emotional disorders for many years. Her practical ideas and interactive style will keep you engaged as you learn valuable strategies.
You will leave this seminar with a wide variety of practical strategies to address difficult behaviors along with an extensive resource handbook to help you put the strategies to use in your own classroom.

A Message From Your Seminar Leader
Today more than ever, educators are being confronted with students who have many more behavioral and emotional problems than were common even ten years ago. Anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, ADHD, bipolar, lagging emotional skills, and conduct disorders often include behaviors that are disruptive and frustrating, for both students and staff.
In this highly practical and engaging seminar, you will gain cutting-edge information and powerful tools for helping these students and minimize the disruptions and frustration for both you and your class. The strategies and ideas I present are ones I have gained through my own experiences as an educator for over 40 years working with emotional and behavior challenged students. My goal is for you to leave the seminar with many new, practical tools, along with a better understanding of emotional and behavior disorders that threaten to stop your teaching, interfere with your students’ learning and steal your joy as a teacher.
Please join me for an interactive, fun and productive day of receiving important information that can make your teaching more effective and your job much less stressful.
P.S. You will leave this seminar with dozens of practical ideas and an extensive resource handbook to help you to implement the strategies in your own classroom!
