Challenging behaviors in child care can be one of the most difficult and frustrating tasks facing early learning providers. Join us as we present practical tools and research-based strategies geared toward positive, proactive behavior management in the classroom. Participants will learn that all behavior is communication, how to interpret what children are communicating, practice brainstorming replacement behaviors, and how to support children through challenging behaviors. We will utilize research from a cognitive-behavioral, sensory, and trauma-informed lens to guide our conversation. Participants will have opportunities to engage in exercises and collaborative conversations that build upon these ideas and generate solutions for challenges that are being experienced in the classroom.

D02: Your Voice, Your Story: Conveying Your Unique Experience Through the Art of Writing, presented by Connie Weber (bio), MA, Kindering
Each of us has a story to tell and our own particular perspective. When we share our common experiences, we build up one another, and we create a community around us. As the parent of a child with special needs or as a teacher or therapist who has worked with children with disabilities, you have a distinctive outlook. The work is often challenging and emotionally demanding. Writing down your experiences can provide a healthy and strengthening outlet for yourself, and though the story is your own, sharing it can furnish others who travel the same road with encouragement. This workshop will help spark your creativity to get you started writing. You’ll participate in writing activities, discuss pertinent issues such as confidentiality, explore the possibilities of genre and literary form, and gain practical ideas on how to use the healing art of writing to enrich your own life and the lives of others.

D03: Enhancing Language and Prosocial Outcomes for Young Children in Inclusive Classrooms, presented by Jennifer Cunningham (bio), PhD, University of Washington, with Gounah Choi (bio), M.Ed, University of Washington, Kathleen Zimmerman (bio), PhD, University of Kansas
The goal of the presentation is to provide a framework for understanding the relationship between child language skills, child prosocial behaviors, and teachers’ instruction in inclusive classrooms. The presentation addresses the following objectives: (1) provide an overview of the literature documenting the relationship between language and prosocial behavior development, (2) explain the transactional relationship among teacher behavior, the classroom environment and children’s behavior, engagement, and language development (3) identify opportunities within instructional activities and routines for embedding strategic support for both domains of development.

This presentation will give an overview of the literature examining the bi-directional relationship between language and prosocial skill development in young children. Evidence from published literature and ongoing research on teacher behaviors and strategies that influence children’s development will be presented. Strategies for embedding support for children’s language and prosocial development across instructional activities and routines in the classroom will be described. The strategies presented will focus specifically on: organizing the environment to promote engagement and increase opportunities for rich language interactions with teachers and peers; systematically responding to children’s prosocial behavior and language initiations with social and linguistic information; and embedding instruction on prosocial skills during activities and routines. For each strategy, the presenters will describe: (1) how and when to implement the strategy, (2) examples of implementation, and (3) examples of how to individualize strategies for children with delayed language or prosocial skill development. Examples will include videos and photographs from inclusive early childhood settings. Additionally, a checklist based system for teaching teams to use to give each other feedback and reflect upon. about the frequency and quality of social and linguistic interactions with children in the classroom will be discussed.

D08: Creating an Eco-Healthy Child Care Learning Environment, presented by Aileen Gagney (bio), MA, UW DEOHS
The child care setting-- the home away from home for millions of children--plays a vital role in keeping kids healthy. Common products found in child care environments may contain chemicals and heavy metals that irritate children's eyes, skin and throats. These contaminants are linked to asthma, learning disabilities, and elevated cancer risk. Unfortunately, these health outcomes are not uncommon, as children (and their caregivers) are also exposed in their home environment to similar hazards, including mold, allergens, lead, radon, heavy metals in dust, and toxic chemicals in cleaning products. This training program is designed to support child care professionals in reducing site-based children's exposure to these hazards, while empowering parents and caregivers to recognize and reduce home-based hazards. This program will provide attendees with concrete steps to protect the children in their care from common environmental hazards. In addition to practical steps for the child-care setting, the course include resources that can be provided to parents and families of children with asthma and allergies.

D10: I Observed, Now What?, presented by Jessica Peters (bio), MA, Lakeshore Learning
Observations in the classroom, we all do them, but now what? How do I plan intentional next steps after observing children in the classroom environment? I see children digging holes in the mud outside, reading books to a worm, running in endless circles, and riding the tricycles until they crash into something. What does this tell me about each child's development? What do I do in the moment? How do I plan for the next day or week? This session will dive into how we observe to be sure we are objective, and to see if we have enough information to guide our next steps. With the use of videos we will then explore ideas for scaffolding and responding in the moment as well as planning for future instruction.

E08: Successful Kindergarten Transitions for Children with and without Disabilities, presented by Colin Gasamis (bio), PhD, Cultivate Learning University of Washington
Transitions can be difficult for all children but may be especially difficult for children with disabilities and their families. It is critical that when a child transitions from Preschool to K-12 they receive timely access to appropriate services. Teachers and education staff can support children and families as they move from one program or system to another, or among services within a program such as from Early Head Start to Head Start. Eligibility and service delivery policies may differ between programs, so it is important to provide support for families as they navigate the changes.

This presentation will offer concrete strategies and sample resources to aid in the transition process.

In addition, it will cover transition practices and the legal requirements of early childhood transitions for children with diagnosed disabilities.

F05: 7 Steps to Raising a High Achiever, presented by Dr. Nicoline Ambe (bio), PhD, Compton Unified School District
Your child’s college education and career future require early planning and careful preparation. As early as Kindergarten, it is important to be aware of key skills, strategies and habits that will positively impact your child’s performance in school. This presentation will teach step-by-step strategies that parents can immediately implement at home to help their children excel in Elementary, Middle, and High School. It will show parents how to position their children for academic success at an early age. For example, foundational skills learned in the 1st grade math will affect a student’s performance in 8th grade math, which will impact their college major and ultimately, their career choice. There is a trickle-down effect in how a student’s performance in earlier grades will affect the outcome of their educational and career aspirations. This presentation will therefore show parents how to position their children for success very early on by instilling the right skill-set, behaviors, mindset, value system and practices that will help their children soar!
