Event Details

Microboards Australia, Developmental Disability WA and VALiD are pleased to invite parents and family members to come along to this workshop to explore:

 

- Common myths about challenging behaviour.

- Why people behave in challenging ways.

- Understanding each other (when challenging behaviour is in the way).

- Why some people can be very complex to support.

- Ways to think about planning for better outcomes.

 

Understanding Behaviour is presented by Jaquie Mills, parent of four children, two with disability. A former high school teacher, Jaquie has a Master of Education in the area of Emotional Intelligence. Her search for a good life for her sons has lead to her exploring a number of other roles including Chair of the Positive Behaviour Framework guiding committee (hosted by the Disability Services Commission in WA) which lead the process of sector reform in the reduction and elimination of restrictive practices.

 

Jaquie has also lead the development of the Graduate Certificate of Education (Complex Communication Needs) at Edith Cowan University which now includes a first of its kind unit in understanding the complex reasons for challenging behaviour for people with disability.

 

In 2017 Jaquie was a WA finalist in the Australian of the Year awards in recognition of her work with people with complex needs.

 

Attendees will receive a FREE COPY of ‘What is your child’s Challenging Behaviour trying to tell you?'.
