Young children who have challenging behavior are more likely to continue to have problems with socialization, school success, and mental health concerns into adolescence and adulthood. This presentation examines how behavioral screeners and assessments, best practices in classroom management, evidence-based behavioral supports, and social/emotional learning instruction can be coordinated within a program to support children’s social, emotional, and behavior needs.
