How can that child be successful and how can I run a classroom when I am having to hold a child all day!?

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!
