QUEENS BOROUGH MEETING

MANAGING UNMANAGEABLE BEHAVIORS: Theory and Practice

STRATEGIES AND TECHNIQUES FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES THAT CAN BE USED ANYWHERE.

Managing challenging behaviors can be one of the most stressful aspects of parenting. This meeting will focus on providing families with practical strategies they can use at home to help decrease unwanted behaviors. Preventative, alternative skill-building reinforcement and desensitization strategies will all be discussed. Cindy Leahy, a Special Education teacher for 23 years and lifetime AHRC New York City member will give real-life examples from her experience as a teacher and parent. Family members, guardians and professionals who attend will have the opportunity to speak about their own experiences with unmanageable behaviors and will hopefully leave with a greater understanding of why challenging behaviors may occur and how families can successfully intervene at home and a knowledge that they are not alone in their struggles. The meeting will also explore the possibility of future meetings as a support group. Please join us!
