One of the most common questions I hear as a consultant is how to eliminate challenging behavior. Research shows educators have described challenging behaviors as one of the greatest barriers they encounter in providing quality instruction. As a result, I created the Behavior Eliminator an easy to use concrete tool to help teachers piece together solutions. The program is divided into five segments. Today’s segment will focus on pushing past emotional distractions to professional actions. Keeping in mind no behavior strategy will work if you unless you have a positive relationship with a child and before you can help someone else you must first deal with your own social and emotional challenges. The Push Past It!© tool to help individuals push past emotional distractions to professional actions can be purchased on my store.
