Is your student with Down syndrome prompt, praise and reward dependent? Do you spend a significant amount of the day trying to find ways to motivate the student to work or stay on task? This seminar will highlight strategies for structuring your classroom and schedule for success while promoting independence and on task behavior. Attendees will also learn how to help students identify when they are frustrated and ask for help as well as develop coping strategies and work through non-preferred tasks.
