About This Webinar:
The environmental arrangement of a classroom, child care center, or family home can impact behavior. This webinar provides practical strategies and resources early childhood practitioners can easily implement in their work. Useful tools for navigating transitions, routines, and communicating expectations and rules are shared. Presenters suggest ways to arrange learning centers, toys, and other objects to promote positive behavior for children with and without disabilities.
