“What experts call ‘behavior management is not about punishing or demoralizing your child. Instead, it’s a way to set boundaries and communicate expectations in a nurturing, loving way. Discipline — correcting kids’ actions, showing them what’s right and wrong, what’s acceptable and what’s not — is one of the most important ways that all parents can show their kids that they love and care about them.

If your child or teen exhibits challenging behavior due to a developmental disability, this 4-session class may be for you. Participation is limited to families who live in Santa Clara County with children ages 0 – 17. Attendance is limited to 8 families to allow for confidential sharing and discussion.

Plan to attend all sessions to get the full benefit of this wonderful program.

01/17/2023 – What is behavior? What are the four functions of behavior?
