Behaviour Support: Supporting better Choices and Decision Making
All children requires support to make better decisions. Sometimes we struggle understanding why children make a decision, however we need to remember that the response a child makes (including behavioural) is their ONLY choice (or best choice) in that situation.
For a child, if falling on the ground and refusing to do work is easier than articulating that “I’m not coping” or “I don’t feel okay inside” then falling on the ground seems like an easier and logical decision for the child.
This one page document discusses the choices children make and how we can reinforce good choices for the child.
