Friday Feature: "Collaborating With Parents in Using Effective Strategies to Reduce Children’s Challenging Behaviors" (Fettig, Schultz, & Ostrosky, 2013) from the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) Young Exceptional Children journal
The authors describe principles of partnership with families, including communication, respect, trust, commitment, and equality (p. 32); discuss how to understand challenging behaviors, provide examples of the three components of a behavior support plan (prevention strategies, new skills to teach, and responses to challenging behavior - see the helpful chart on p. 35).
Question for us to reflect on:
To what extent do we "share power" with families when collaborating to support children's positive behaviors?
