Most students can generally be managed in the classroom with the existing tools in our toolbox. However, occasionally some students exhibit difficult behaviors that exceed our current tool set. In these instances, evidence-based interventions should be implemented and aimed at both preventing the behavior from occurring as well as decreasing it once it occurs. In addition, students come to us with a variety of family backgrounds, histories and consequences, and biology. Due to this, the same interventions do not work with all students and what works with a student one day may not work the next.
This session will explain the behavioral neuroscience underlying Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), and Anxiety, the symptoms that result in the classroom, and how to implement more effective and strategic interventions using this information.
