Presentation Title

Restraint and Seclusion Law - Best Methods for Educating the Educator

Brief Biography

With over twenty-five years in education, I have worked with students from preschool through the high school in many different regions and cultures. My experiences include teaching in the inner city, suburbs, and rural communities. I have also taught internationally in Guam, South Korea, and Lima, Peru. I have done extensive staff training throughout the world. Working with teachers and schools is a passion of mine, leading to the completion of my doctoral degree in School Improvement. I know the importance of working with difficult kids, and I want to help others gain insight on what can work to help these students succeed.

It will look at a basic history of working with challenging student behaviors and how this history impacts our schools today. It will then provide information on research based practices for training educators to meet the requirements of the policy. At the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to determine better ways to fulfill the law as they move forward in working with students with difficult behaviors.
