Managing Behaviours – Webinars

Down Syndrome Ireland have two upcoming online webinars planned to support parents, teachers, and other professionals who work with children and young adults with Down syndrome.
▪ Managing Behaviours at Pre-School and Primary School Stage -Monday the March of 28th, from 7 pm to 8.30 pm.
▪ Managing Behaviours at Post Primary & Young Adult Stages – Thursday the March of 31st from 7 pm to 8.30 pm.

We are delighted to welcome Mr. John Curran – Behaviour Specialist as our guest presenter for both webinars.
John has over 15 years of experience supporting parents and professionals who are involved with individuals who challenge using behaviour across a wide variety of environments (family homes, schools, respite facilities, residential units etc.). This service has been used by a variety of clientele across a wide age bracket (youngest client 2yrs old – oldest client mid-70s). A professional service, it is used frequently by high profile agencies such as HSE/TUSLA/CAMHS as well as many charities, schools, support groups across Ireland, collaborating with social workers, psychologists, teachers, SNAs, parents, foster carers, and other staff within professional settings.
The aim of the service is to educate and empower adult figures involved with individuals who challenge using behaviour by giving them the tools to impact positively on as many areas as they feel they can when helping an individual to progress and reach their true potential.
You probably saw this on social media or on the DSI Digests on Fridays (let me know if you are not receiving it)
