Helpful Behavior Intervention Support Techniques for Children

Great Support for Children, Teachers, Parents, School Counselors, Administrators, and Therapists! 

Do you have behavior problems with your child, student, or client?

On this page you will find some fantastic techniques (See the Below Links) to help even the most challenging child behave. You can use these techniques at home, school, or offer them as support to the parents of your young clients.

I have worked in the school system for 18 years as a teacher, school counselor, and Response to Intervention Coordinator.  Believe me, I sometimes think I have seen it all, and then I get a new and challenging child. I have to support teachers and parents.  As a play therapist in private practice, I also give the parents of my young clients support at home and at school with these technique ideas.  

Teachers have used the worksheets I have created over many years, and have found that they work. Parents can also use these behavior support techniques at home, or may want to offer them as support to their child’s teacher. Outside therapists have used these techniques as support to parents and teachers.
