I created this document and presented to the support staff members, who work with children with special needs, at my school. It teaches and gives examples of how to use positive verbal guidance and
positive behavior strategies. Throughout the professional development I had the adults work in groups. They acted various scenarios out by first showing an adult responding negatively to a child's behavior and then changing their response to a more positive approach based on the strategies learned in the hand-out. It was a fun and productive PD!! The document also includes an agenda!
