Abstract: This free one-hour webcast provides evidence-based strategies for how to work with young children demonstrating challenging behaviors in early childhood settings. It is presented by Dr. Desiree W. Murray, a Senior Research Scientist and Associate Director of Research at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Ask the Expert is a program of Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) which is a national non-profit, organization providing education, advocacy and support for individuals with ADHD. After listening to this webcast, scholars will learn about challenging behaviors in early childhood settings, how to create classroom structures and implement teacher practices that support positive behaviors, effective approaches to rewarding students, and approaches to teaching self-regulation.
