“I can’t!” “I don’t know how!” “You have to do it!” Tired of hearing these phrases from your students?. Teach them how to solve their own problems—rather than rely on you—and help them positively shape their behavior in the process. In this session, participants will discuss why independence is needed, how best to develop it, and ways to encourage parents in the home setting to do the same.

The following resources from Dan can be found at Audrey’s Books:
  • Teach Skills and Break Habits (PK-5 grade PD book)
  • Yummy, Yummy in My Tummy (PK-1 children’s book)
To order the either book please contact Audrey's Books on the Exhibitor Page -
