Join this presentation to learn more about the harmful effects of the use of exclusionary discipline (suspension, expulsion, shortened day) with young children and alternative approaches for the use of positive practices that ensure children are included and engaged in learning with their peers. Lise Fox, of the National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations, will provide families with information on the importance of ensuring that young children do not get pushed out of the classroom, even when behavior is challenging and provide resources for strategies to address challenging behavior in ways that ensure the child is successful and included.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will identify the harmful effects of the use of exclusionary discipline practices on young children with disabilities and their peers.
  • Participants will identify alternatives to the exclusionary discipline practices (e.g., sending child home early, time with a different teacher, suspension) and resources that can be used in behavior support planning for young children.

Lise Fox, PhD, is a Professor and Chair in the Department of Child and Family Studies in the College of Behavioral and Community Sciences of the University of South Florida. She is the Principal Investigator of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) early childhood technical assistance center, National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations, and is involved in multiple research and national technical assistance projects related to early childhood programs and practices. Her research is focused on practical approaches for the inclusion of young children with problem behavior in community settings and individualized interventions for addressing young children’s challenging behavior.
