Abstract

We are created for relationships. Diagnosed or undiagnosed, children with Social, Emotional and Behavioral Learning Challenges are some of the most misunderstood and often lonely students in schools today. Many educators and even parents do not understand what to do to support these children who do not do well in the current public school system. In February 2017, the Iowa Department of Education wrote an article featuring Howard-Winneshiek’s systems approach to implementing Social Emotional Learning strategies district-wide. Terese Jurgensen will share tools she created for this systems approach, which assesses cognitive skills and social-emotional learning supports. This data outlines how to write individual learning plans for students with challenging behaviors. The Conversation/Dialogue will outline schoolwide strategies and supports for students that are closing the social, emotional, behavioral and communication gaps that prevent students from realizing their true potential and, most importantly, the relationships they are created for.
