Episode 11: The Boy Who Dives Under the Table with Kristie Pretti-Frontczak

Hello and welcome to another episode of our wonderful Synergy Autism Podcast. Today, I am chatting with my good friend and colleague, Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak. She was working with a classroom team in one of her trainings who was perplexed as to what to do for and with a child who dives under the table at the end of the day. Listen in as we "unpack" what to do in the middle of the storm but then also how to return to the issue to teach and support in different ways. We explore what to do to: Decrease stressors Engage your whole classroom team in decreasing stressors Engage a parent who is there to pick up the child An extra special thank you to Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak for another great question for us to discuss and share with you.
