Behaviour Workshop Poster SKCEC

May 5th, 2017 @ the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation building from 9-3:30.

This workshop will focus on child development and the protective factors that help to foster healthy development in children. It will also discuss how to assess, using practical formal and informal methods, various aspects of development including cognitive, social, behavioural, and social skills. The presenters will then describe various simple, evidence-based tools and strategies to intervene in the primary areas of development.
