    Behaviour is a way children can communicate their feelings, needs and wants. However, as educators we can respond to the behaviour in ways that do not fully consider or reflect our understanding of any triggers underlying the behaviour.   

    This webinar will reflect on how our responses and interactions influence children's behaviour and will explore strategies using the KidsMatter framework to increase understanding of behaviour and the impact of educators’ interactions and relationships.
