Child Abuse Prevention

Child abuse prevention doesn’t have to be scary or complicated. Using research-based tools and strategies, teachers and parents can develop “safety fluency” in children by providing them with consistent exposure to skill learning and practice opportunities. Potential topics include professional development, commercial curriculum implementation, integration of safety skills into academic curriculum, family support classes, and trainings on inclusion of safety objectives in the IEP/ISFP. 

Behavior Management for Group Settings

Jennifer strategically trains and coaches organizations and school districts to use research-based methods for managing and supporting child behavior in group settings. Training occurs in a variety of environments including self-paced online courses, live virtual trainings on the platform Zoom, and in-person trainings (when public safety allows). Topics may include understanding the basics of behavior, addressing challenging behavior through assessment and intervention planning, learning best practices for teaching healthy behavior, implementing behavior management systems, and parent education.

Integration of Social/Emotional Skills

There are a couple of things I know from my experience as a public school teacher:

1. Teachers don't need another huge curriculum to implement.

2. Teachers don't need another lesson plan.

3. Teachers need a simple, effective way to teach SEL.

In my trainings, I combine the best practices for academic learning with the best practices for social emotional learning. I teach educators to look at their existing academic curriculum and seamlessly insert social emotional skill teaching and practice in ways that feel authentic and natural.

"Jennifer was amazing. She provided real strategies for dealing with the current stay-at-home - but many of the ideas (i.e., the agendas) are useful at all times. I like that this was applicable to children of all ages."
