Parents and teachers will be taught a different way to think about problem behavior. Often behaviors are a form of communication. With this training you will learn the importance of a Functional Behavioral Assessment, how to reinforce positive behavior as well as how to develop a Positive Behavior Support Plan.
This training centers on employment for youth with disabilities by presenting two distinct strands: self-determination and "do-it-yourself" strategies for parents and concrete information about employment and how to access adult services for teens/young adults. Curriculum is tailored from region to region to local service delivery systems, youth programs and employment resources.
In-person trainings are offered throughout the state of Missouri. Parents living outside the state are permitted to attend but are encouraged to attend trainings in their home state. States have different laws and procedures regarding how children with disabilities receive special education and related services.
MPACT offers parents and professionals a variety of online and in-person trainings. All trainings are FREE of charge. Please contact us if you would like to schedule a training for your area or organization.
Please register for any of the workshops you would like to attend so we can send you electronic copies of the materials and notify you of any changes in the schedule.
If there is inclement weather and the school district located in the area where the training is being held cancels school, the MPACT training will also be cancelled. Participants who have registered online will be notified via email.
