Behavior Support Course

Next Course Date: January 2024
Thursday's 5:30-7:00 pm ET

Summary: The Behavior Support Course provides families the knowledge and tools they need to help their child replace distressed, challenging behavior with healthier, adaptive skills. Oftentimes, when children lack the skills to clearly communicate their wants and needs, they engage in challenging behavior as a way to communicate. Thrive's Behavior Support Course teaches families how to identify the reason behind their children's behavior as well as the skills missing that are needed for them to communicate in a more constructive way. During this multi-week course, instructors will lead participants through content and hands-one activities that build on the previous lessons until families can understand challenging behavior, identify skill deficits, and confidently and effectively teach their child new skills using compassionate, research-based strategies. The goal of this course is to give families the knowledge and tools they need to help their child grow while improving quality of life and family relationships.
