DescriptionPresenter: Jessica Minahan, M.Ed, BCBA

Speaking topics include a combination of the following:

Reducing Anxiety in the Classroom:
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports that one in four thirteen to eighteen-year-olds has had an anxiety disorder in their lifetime. Without intervention, these children are at risk for poor performance, diminished learning, and social/behavior problems in school. Understanding the role anxiety plays in a student’s behavior is crucial and using preventive strategies are key to successful intervention. Effective behavior plans for these students must avoid the reward and punishment-based consequences from traditional behavior plans and focus instead on the use of preventive strategies and on explicitly teaching coping skills, self-monitoring, and alternative responses

Behavioral and Educational Best Practices for Students with Mental Health Disabilities
About 10 percent of kids in school –approximately 9-13 million students — struggle with mental health problems. Whether they’re running out of a class, not doing their homework, disrupting others, or quietly being defiant, their behavior is often misread and misdiagnosed. The frustration level teachers and parents face can be overwhelming, and traditional behavior plans are often ineffective and even unhelpful in addressing certain behaviors because they do not acknowledge the underlying causes. The training will provide empathetic, flexible, practical, and more importantly effective strategies for preventing inappropriate behavior from the start in the classroom, and dealing with it once it’s already happening.

Jessica Minahan's Biography:
"Since 2000 my goal has been to help clinicians, teachers and parents identify and understand the variables that cause students to act inappropriately. I’ve worked continuously with students who exhibited an infinite variety of behavior challenges in both urban and suburban public schools.I show how commonplace school factors, as well as the student’s underdeveloped skills, contribute to his or her challenging behavior. I provide professionals with time-tested interventions that will lead their students to more appropriate, constructive behavior in and out of school..."
