Event description

Description

In recent years, the Pobal Annual Early Years Sector Survey Reports have reflected the increasing diversity in children attending ECCE services in Ireland. While this brings many benefits, it also presents a complex challenge for services and staff given the increasing variation in skills and abilities across children which can increase the likelihood of problem behaviour developing. Tackling problem behaviour through preventive strategies and evidence based teaching tools supports children’s success in line with national initiatives regarding ECCE quality and education (Síolta, Aistear, Better Start) and recommendations for inclusive practice (AIM) ensuring that each child can access the many learning opportunities that present each day in early childhood settings.

This event aims to share the findings of some of our recent research in this area funded by the Children’s Research Network as well as ongoing research within the School of Psychology at the National University of Galway, Ireland (NUIG). The event is being run by members of the Applied Behavioural Research Group at NUIG. This workshop-style event will give an overview of the current research on challenging behaviour, it’s prevalence and association with other factors in children’s lives (e.g. communication skills, social behaviour, duration of childcare etc.). Following this, an introduction to understanding behaviour will be provided. Finally, we will share information on function-based strategies for managing and preventing challenging behaviour within early childhood settings. The session will focus on group based interventions and social skills.

Registration will begin at 5:30pm with coffee, tea and sandwiches provided, to facilitate individuals coming straight from work. The workshop will commence at 6:00pm.
