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.

As featured in...

HOW DOES IT WORK?

REGISTER TO ATTEND

Each day of the conference you'll not only receive free 24 hour access to that day's talks, but you'll also get daily workbooks & resources to help you reflect, imagine, & grow. Let's transform challenging behavior together!

JOIN THE COMMUNITY

Conference attendees will have exclusive access to the private Transform Challenging Behavior Facebook group. There will be daily questions, idea sharing, & networking for teachers, directors, & other professionals...and prizes!

SPREAD THE WORD

Invite your colleagues, your supervisor, and anyone else who you think would benefit from this powerful material - that way you can work together to implement the new ideas that you'r learning. Let's make change happen.

"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!"

Is it really free?

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CREDIT

Can I get professional development credit?

First and foremost we would recommend that you register for the learning and the community. If everything you’ve read here resonates or the conference has been recommended to you then sign up so you can access the free talks and see if you even like them! Then, once you start learning and see how useful they are you can explore the option to receive professional development certificates by paying a fee. Packages start at $49 (less than $2.33 per talk!).

Will this count in my state?

If your state accepts a certificate of attendance for professional development hours then it should. Please check with your supervisor if you are uncertain.
 
So I have to pay to get the professional development?
The learning and your professional growth is 100% free. You do need to buy a package to get access to the downloadable certificates.

FACEBOOK

I'm not on Facebook. Can I still participate? I don't want to miss anything!

Don't worry. April 28th - May 4th you will get a daily email with a link to access the talks for that day plus a downloadable workbook.

Will I miss my chance to talk with Barb (conference creator), the speakers, and other early childhood educators from around the world

No pressure but we know at least a few participants who made a Facebook account just to come hangout in our conference Facebook group and haven't told their friends or family! You can delete it after the conference.

WHO IT'S FOR

I don't live in the US is this for me too?

Yes! Please join us

But what about the time difference, will I miss everything?

No! Your 24 hours to view the talks will just start at a different time of day than people in a different part of the world.

I work full time, part time, or weird hours - will I miss everything?

Nope. It's all pre-recorded and you'll get 24 hours to watch each session.

Is the content relevant to parents and families of young children

Yes. Some sessions are a little more focused on group settings but there will be tons of relevant info!

I am a family childcare provider or home visitor - is it for me?

Yes. Absolutely.

Would you recommend infant/toddler/two's/kindergarten teachers sign up or is it just for preschool?

Yes. We definitely recommend that infant/toddler/two's/kindergarten teachers sign up! The examples used in the sessions tend to focus on preschool children and the conference was designed for teachers of children 2-5 years old but any teacher of children in the birth-grade 2 age range will get a ton out of all the sessions.

SHARING & TECH ISSUES

Can I share my daily link with the other teachers at my center?​

No. Everyone needs to register for themselves at: challengingbehaviorconference.com

Why I haven’t I received a confirmation email even though I registered?

Many work email systems block bulk email senders or put them in the spam/junk/promotions folders. This can be true with Yahoo, Hotmail and Comcast email addresses, too. Did you check those junk/spam folders? If all else fails create a new FREE Gmail account! You can set it up to forward to your preferred email.
