A. Practical Management of Tough Kids:
Behaviorally disorder/emotionally disturbed students are frequently referred to as Tough Kids because they exhibit strong behavioral excesses such as arguing, noncompliance, and aggression. At the same time, they posses significant behavioral deficits in self-management (rule-governed behavioral), social skills, and academic abilities.
Participants learn what causes Tough Kid behavior, how to practically assess it, and strategies to remediate it. The emphasis is on proactive strategies and positive behavior management interventions such as:
