Join child/adolescent behavior expert, Jay Berk, PhD, and learn how to best manage the students at your school diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), mood disorders, anxiety and depression. You will walk away with concrete, yet practical, strategies to successfully intervene with their serious behavioral issues, such as:

• How to engage students in class, increase productivity and reduce truancy
• Behavioral assessments and strategies for the IEP team
• Side-effects of common psychotropic medications
• How skill deficits from mental health conditions create behavioral difficulties

• Strategies to gain collaboration with clinicians

Objectives:
• Articulate how behavioral-driven choices differ from mental health-driven behaviors and characterize how these differences inform your choice of intervention.
• Communicate the effective uses of medications and potential side effects that can appear as misbehaviors.
• Implement various school-based strategies, used in collaboration with community clinicians, to intervene when behavioral issues arise from mental health conditions.
• Determine effective positive behavior support strategies to successfully discipline the special needs child.
• Discriminate how IDEA relates to mental health issues and discipline.
• Apply communication techniques that create a climate for success inside and outside the classroom.
