About This Webinar:

Professionals working with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are likely to encounter challenging behavior.  This webinar provides a review of the ABCs of behavior (antecedent, behavior, consequence) as well as help professionals identify the function of behavior.  Dr. Hardy explains the ways in which multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) can be utilized to manage challenging behavior for all children, but especially children with disabilities or who have experienced trauma.  The use of tally sheets, forms, and checklists to inform decisions that support positive behavior and sustain behavioral change is also addressed.


Jessica Hardy received her Ph.D. in early childhood special education from Vanderbilt University and her M.Ed. and B.A. from the University of Florida.  She taught in Portland, OR as a Head Start teacher and an early childhood special education teacher.  Jessica’s primary research interests are supporting social-emotional development; evidence-based instructional practices, particularly for teaching early math and science; and early childhood coaching and professional development.
