In Region 9 we see a substantial number of programs that seek strategies to address new and challenging behaviors this program year. “Adults often find children’s behaviors interesting and engaging. There are also behaviors that adults sometimes find challenging. For example, infants fuss or cry despite the adults’ efforts to comfort them or have different feeding or sleeping schedules. Toddlers sometimes hit, bite, fall to the floor, cry, kick, whine, or say “no.” Some preschoolers argue or fight over toys, struggle to follow directions, or become overly aggressive as they play. Toddlers and preschoolers may also have moments of energetic play, move quickly from activity to activity, or withdraw and not want to participate in activities. Often, these behaviors are developmentally appropriate, typical, and normal—and they change with support and social, emotional, and cognitive development.” – From the Office of Head Start, Head Start ECLKC
Positive Solutions for Challenging Behaviors training series is a series that offers Head Start, Earl Head Start educators, coordinators and support staff strategies to address many of the challenges facing our educational environments.
This 8-part series takes a deep dive into understanding and managing challenging behaviors. Learners will walk away not only with a strengthened foundational understanding of challenging behaviors, but with tools, strategies, and interventions that they can immediately put into practice to increase social-emotional development and decrease challenging behaviors in the classroom.
This series will target – Increase understanding and causes compassion fatigue, assess staff wellness and self-care, increase understanding of how challenging behaviors and work-related stressors can activate the body’s stress response system, recognize why challenging behaviors occur from a neurodevelopmental lens, and implement specific strategies to support with behaviors

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
