Addressing Infant and Toddler Behaviors that Challenge Adults | NCECDTL Trainings

  • November 5, 2021

The Arizona Early Childhood Network has partnered with the National Center on Early Childhood, Development, Teaching, and Learning (NCECDTL) to offer FREE trainings to our Arizona workforce in the Registry!

NCECDTL is managed by ZERO TO THREE on behalf of the Office of Head Start. As the prime partner, ZERO TO THREE is responsible for setting the overall direction for the center and providing leadership.

All infant and toddler behaviors have meaning, even if adults sometimes find those behaviors challenging. Hear from Beth Zack, Ph.D., Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences at the University of Washington, about why it’s important to reframe how we think about challenging behavior to behavior as a form of communication. Learn about some of the developmental reasons why young children behave in ways that are challenging to adults and how those behaviors relate to the learning domains outlined in the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF). Discover key strategies for addressing behaviors adults find challenging and learn how to support infants and toddlers when they exhibit these behaviors.
