Path to Positive Behavior
A Thoughtful Approach
When children express challenging emotions or actions, our goal is to provide Positive Behavior Support. Displays of defiance, aggression, or harsh words often mean more development is needed, including emotional, language, social, and cognitive skills.
At Young School, these behaviors are treated as learning opportunities. We offer our teachers a series of tools and resources to help them redirect and guide changes through Positive Behavior Support.
Our myPath® app contains ideas and strategies aimed at encouraging positive behavior in the classroom and beyond.
Support offered by myPath includes:
- More than 1,000 age-appropriate strategies for teachers to help children develop the skills necessary to behave in positive ways.
- Suggestions inspired by the most current and trusted research into the social-emotional development of children.
- Specific, targeted strategies for teachers to directly address a child’s specific behavioral and developmental need.
- Innovative ideas to encourage positive behaviors throughout the day.
