About this Learning Opportunity

You are likely familiar with behaviour support or safety plans developed for our most complex learners. Unfortunately, we often develop a “can’t” mindset when it comes to what these students can or can’t do at school. Have you ever considered how to evaluate these behaviours and minimize risks so that our students and staff CAN safely participate in all school activities? I will share examples and discuss a document I created which will help address these concerns.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
