Confronting Challenging Behaviors in Young Children: Special Topics in Special Needs

Tue, Sep 20, 2016: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Join us for another incredible learning opportunity! Gina Baldi of CHC will present on strategies for better responding when a child with a disability has challenging behaviors. Participants can expect to:

  • Identify the causes of challenging behaviors
  • Facilitate positive interventions
  • Create “teachable moments”
  • Help with peer interaction
  • Find opportunities for success.

Most importantly, participants will learn what not to do in response to difficult behaviors. This training is suitable for parents and professionals alike!


This training is open to FIRST 5 partners, therapeutic and related service providers, and parents! CEUs available for LMFTS, LCSWs, LPCCs and LEPs, as required by the CA Board of Behavioral Sciences. Certificates are available upon request, indicating hours earned against the Infant-Family Early Childhood Mental Health Guidelines.


Prior to joining Children’s Health Council, Gina Baldi was the Director of Early Intervention at Pacific Autism Center for Education (PACE) and Area Director for Easter Seals Bay Area—Autism Program. Gina spent much of her time training and empowering parents to support their child’s skill development on all levels. She also trained and supported teams of developmental therapists, behavioral interventionists and teachers to develop successful programs for children on the Autism Spectrum.
