Behavioural support

Unexpected behaviours are often the first sign that students are experiencing emotional overwhelm. While adjustments and scaffolds put in place can lessen the possibility of these behaviours, these moments can also be a great learning experience if addressed sensitively. These behavioural support practices focus on how to coach students through these experiences, and how teachers can respond constructively.
