About this presentation

When we bring effective strategies to the natural settings where people with challenging behaviors already live, learn and work, we increase their quality of life and that of those who support them. As regulations change, and families expect better outcomes, we need to prepare community members and organizations for behavioral diversity. We all benefit from inclusive settings, and we all seek to be successful in supporting others. This session will highlight examples of successful strategies applied at home, school and in the community with those who challenge us to be our best.
