Let’s Talk Behavior Conference
See the Ability, a local nonprofit working on education and employment initiatives for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities is putting on a conference on Saturday, October 8th at St. Mary’s College called “Let’s Talk Behavior.” There is a morning session for educators/professionals (9am-12pm) and an afternoon session for parents/caregivers (1pm-4pm). This is a great opportunity for local educators, professionals, parents and caregivers to learn how to find the “function” in behavior that may seem dysfunctional! Behavior can be frustrating, but the good news is that there is a science of learning and behavior that can help you learn how to better address any behavioral concerns you have no matter what age or stage your child is in. The cost of the conference is only $5!
