Schools are increasingly seeing young students with behavioral needs that reach far beyond the regular classroom management umbrella. Whether it is the uptick in students identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the increased frequency of students who experience traumatic events or those who continuously live in high stress environments which deplete their ability to regulate their emotions. The work of student support teams, parents and the mental health providers in each community is critical to the success of all students. Those who work in the school buildings know all too well that the challenging behaviors of many of our students can affect the overall mental well being and performance of an entire classroom or school setting. This session will examine the processes and practices our school based team uses to identify and address the significant student behaviors associated with these scenarios and circumstances. We will share how we use data, strategic behavior plans, resilience practices and mental health supports to help our students succeed while also working to preserve the overall wellness of our staff.
