PTAC, Mid-South ECDC and Capital District ECDC are sponsoring free conferences featuring Jeanine Fitzgerald, Human Behavior Consultant and Specialist.

On Tuesday, April 24, 2018 from 9:00am- 3:00pm (lunch on your own from 12-1) she will present "Different Children Different Needs", participants will learn the unique strengths each child brings to the world and how we can relate and interact with the child to promote the strengths.

On Tuesday, April 24, 2018 from 6:00pm- 7:30pm she will present "Beyond Bossing, Begging and Bribing", participants will learn the choices we have to parent, teach and discipline children. When you leave this session, you will have a deeper understanding of the strategies that balance structure and support in a child?s life.

On Wednesday, April 25, 2018 from 9:00am- 3:00pm (lunch on your own from 12-1) she will present "No Senseless Behavior", participants will learn that challenging behaviors are not just a reflection of some emotional or social disturbance in a child. They are a symptom of an unsolved problem, often related to unmet needs or a lack of skills and resources. Therefore, we must focus on what a child needs, instead of what an adult or system demands. 
 Location:  Capital Region BOCES located at 900 Watervliet Shaker Rd. in Albany, NY.
