Efficacy of Coaching Preschool Teachers to Manage Challenging Behavior

Efficacy of Coaching Preschool Teachers to Manage Challenging Behavior <p>Abstract:</p><p>Many early educators cite behavior management as a top professional development need. Evidence-based practices exist to address severe challenging behavior, but promoting implementation of these practices remains a challenge. In this single-case design study, two preschool teachers received coaching focused on implementing three evidence-based strategies—referencing a visual representation of expectations, systematic monitoring and positive reinforcement, and self-management. Coaching that featured modeling and performance feedback enabled the teachers to implement all three strategies for a child with severe challenging behavior. Although student behavior was not incorporated into the experimental design, descriptive data showed marked improvement that coincided with implementation of self-management procedures.

<p>Abstract:</p><p>Many early educators cite behavior management as a top professional development need. Evidence-based practices exist to address severe challenging behavior, but promoting implementation of these practices remains a challenge. In this single-case design study, two preschool teachers received coaching focused on implementing three evidence-based strategies—referencing a visual representation of expectations, systematic monitoring and positive reinforcement, and self-management. Coaching that featured modeling and performance feedback enabled the teachers to implement all three strategies for a child with severe challenging behavior.
