Episode 10: When A Child Will Only Be Held

Listen in to episode 10 where Barbara Avila and Kristie Pretti-Frontczak discuss a question Kristie got from the field (early childhood preschool classrooms)....

What do you do when a child will only be held and will "meltdown" if put down onto the floor, a chair, or elsewhere? How can that child be successful and how can I run a classroom when I am having to hold a child all day!?

Episode 9: When A Child Just Won't Join The Group!

When a child says "NO WAY!" verbally or through their behavior - what do you do?!?

What IEP or IFSP can you possibly write?

What do you do when they refuse to join?

In this podcast, I am speaking with Dr. Kristi Pretti-Fronczak. We answer a question from one of her ECSE teams about a child who just won't join the group or any other activity for that matter. The team wants to know how to teach and what IEP/IFSP goals to write when this happens. Listen in as we hash this one out together!
