Over the summer, educators and administrators extensively planned for most of the nation’s students to return to in-person instruction this fall. They prepared for the significant challenges they expected to face, from learning loss to behavior issues that were likely to intensify as students transitioned back to in-school learning and reacclimated to the structures and daily routines they were no longer used to following.
Despite their best efforts, most educators were not prepared for the sheer enormity of the behavior challenges and levels of mental health concerns they faced when students did return. The impact of months of isolation, inconsistent routines, and challenging home environments resulted in unprecedented behavioral issues that most educators felt ill-equipped to deal with effectively.
In this edWeb podcast, Dr. Will Henson, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, and Dr. Gastrid Harrigan, Principal of Cypress Run Education Center in Broward County (FL), help listeners understand the root causes of many of the most difficult behaviors and the ways in which recent events have intensified these challenges. In addition, they share proven strategies that educators can implement immediately to effectively address challenging behaviors while still holding high expectations and providing high support to students.
This edWeb podcast is of interest to PreK-12 school and district leaders and special education directors.
