Understanding Difficult Behavior in Children with Developmental Disabilities

September 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


We want your life to be easier
Understanding Challenging Behavior in Children with Developmental Disabilities is a 5 week series for families of youth with special needs.
If your child exhibits challenging behavior due to a developmental disability, this class may be for you. To attend your child should be between 4 and 18 and live in Santa Clara County.

Yassamin Faraj, who holds a Masters of Education in Autism and ABA, and has a national certification as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), will lead the workshop series. Yassamin will help us understand why challenging behavior occurs and how to identify approaches to decrease or eliminate that behavior. The fifth session will be dedicated to creating a one-page description for your child, based on your learning.
