Practical Ways to Decrease Challenging Behaviors in School, Home, and Community Settings with Dr. Lynn Kern Koegel, Stanford University, California

PBS – Working Together to Support Children and Families with Dr. Ilene Schwartz, University of Washington

Supporting students with disabilities and their families takes a village. The village includes the student, their peers, family members, friends, and a variety of professionals from different disciplines. Sometimes these professionals let their disciplinary differences create barriers to providing seamless services to students and families. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss strategies that professionals can employ to work collaboratively to enhance outcomes for students with disabilities.
