Building a positive relationship with a child’s family that affirms their culture and identity is an important part of an early childhood practitioner’s job. This webinar addresses ways practitioners can connect with and include families of young children with disabilities in identifying and implementing strategies to support positive behavior at school, childcare, and home. Presenters share tips for navigating difficult conversations with families regarding challenging behavior.
