Rank #3: #12: When a child is "being bad"

Podcast cover
Read more
1st in our new podcast series, Barbara and Pam discuss the notion that children are not being bad when they exhibit a challenging behavior. They delve deeper into one specific case that Pam brings up where a child is being characterized as choosing to engage in difficult behaviors or is “being bad”. They talk through how they support families and school teams to move past that thinking to understand that behavior is communication.

Rank #4: #11: The boy who dives under the table. A conversation with Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak

Podcast cover
Read more
Hello and welcome to another episode of our wonderful Synergy Autism Podcast.

Today, I am chatting with my good friend and colleague, Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak. She was working with a classroom team in one of her trainings who was perplexed as to what to do for and with a child who dives under the table at the end of the day.

Listen in as we "unpack" what to do in the middle of the storm but then also how to return to the issue to teach and support in different ways. We explore what to do to:

Decrease stressors

Engage your whole classroom team in decreasing stressors

Engage a parent who is there to pick up the child

An extra special thank you to Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak for another great question for us to discuss and share with you.
