Behaviour: How to engage with hard-to-reach children

Connected Podcast Logo

In this episode, we’re talking about behaviour and the importance of asking why a child or young person is behaving the way they are. Our guest is author, behaviour specialist and teacher Adele Bates who works with specialist and mainstream schools in the UK and abroad on everything from writing behaviour policies to tackling aggressive behaviour in the classroom. Adele will be delivering a CPD keynote for Thrive later this spring looking at how educators can engage with hard-to-reach children whose behaviour may be particularly concerning.  

Listen to discover: 

  • Real-life examples of behaviour issues that Adele has encountered – and the strategies she used to get a different outcome 
  • The importance of curiosity when it comes to unpicking classroom behaviour 
  • Why neuroscience is key when it comes to understanding behaviour 
  • The importance of examining our own behaviours and attitudes when it comes to de-escalation 
  • The impact of the pandemic on behaviour
