MEET YOUR HOST

Barb O'Neill, Ed.D.

Hi. I'm Barb. I created this event because I envision a world where all early childhood professionals feel confident and skilled at working with children they find challenging.

 

I love working with the "challenging" kids but I used to go home feeling fed up and questioning my career choice.

 

Then, I studied theater while also pursuing my Ed.D. in early childhood special ed. I discovered new strategies as well as how to use play to prevent challenging behavior.

 

This conference brings together what I’ve discovered during 25 years in the field combined with cutting edge ideas from other experts. 

 

Let’s transform challenging behavior together.

"I thought the online conference was genius, and well done. Your generosity, and that of the presenters, is so amazing and inspiring. As you know, and pointed out in your presentations, teachers have such limited resources, and this was quite the gift. I just keep telling everyone about it because it was meaningful, inspiring, and FREE!"
