The greatest gift we can give a child is self awareness:
how to self-regulate and to meet their own needs through the use of appropriate communication.

Working with, teaching, parenting or caring for children with behavioural issues regardless of their root cause, is incredibly challenging. Unfortunately, children do not come with a manual.
It is my hope that within this site you will find the knowledge and the tools you need to help these special students become successful in the classroom and in life to whatever end they are capable.
The work you are doing is of tremendous value and will make the difference in the future not only for these special children on a personal level and ourselves but for society as a whole. No child is unreachable.
Thank you for doing the work to seek a way to solve the problem with love and compassion. Give yourself a pat on the back each day. You deserve it.
Behaviour can be created or influenced by a number of factors such as poverty, learned helplessness, or your own actions. Your perception plays a large role. Learn about the influence of life conditions and your role in bringing out good or bad behaviours.
Success with children of all emotional states requires both the right attitude within yourself as well as a good approach. Build up your behaviour tool-belt to effectively cope in all situations.
