Support with 'challenging behaviour' at the Nursery World Show 2016

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Leading expert Kay Mathieson will be providing advice on this hot topic in a one-hour seminar on Friday 5 February.

‘Challenging’ behaviour: causes and positive responses will help you gain a better understanding of 'challenging' behaviour and how to support children's learning about behaviour, including engaging parents positively in the process.

Kay Mathieson is an early years consultant, trainer and author, who is particularly interested in exploring what life is like in our early years settings for two-year-olds and the way in which children with additional needs and their families are included effectively. Her books include Inclusion in the EYFS, I am two! Working Effectively with two year olds and their families, and Understanding Young Children's Behaviour.

Her work in early years and primary settings since 1981 has included supporting children with additional needs, especially behaviour, and their families. She led the Early Years Inclusion Team in a London Borough for six years, which involved supporting PVI settings to develop more inclusive practice. She also worked part time the National Strategies team.
