How do you manage the behavior of your speech students?
Lauren LaCour Haines from Busy Bee Speech is joining me in this episode to talk all about behavior when it comes to speech and language!

She serves as SLP and the lead special education teacher at a local primary school. Lauren is the author of the website busybeespeech.com and sells speech therapy-related resources on Teachers Pay Teachers.
In This Episode You’ll Discover:

- Making a plan for handling situations
- The four main functions of behavior
- Making sure your environment is set up for success
- Resources for engagement
Lauren provided such great advice and tips for SLPs in this episode about behavioral management. I love that she reminded us that we have to tailor our actions differently for each student! All kids are different, and there will likely be a trial and error period.
There are so many resources and people you can ask for help! Don’t be afraid to speak up and ask for help when you need it.

Are you sick and tired of professional development that isn't relevant to you in the field being a school-based SLP or an SLP that works with school-aged children? I’ve been there, and that is why I created the Speech Retreat conference which provides amazing professional development and practical and relevant information for school-based SLPs! It is on July 17th, but you should get your ticket ahead of time at speechretreat.com because we are already giving away tons of fun prizes in the exclusive Facebook group!
