Advanced Positive Child Guidance

Course Code: EDUE1126B

Credits: 2

Course Description: Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) encounter children with exceptionalities and/or challenging behaviours who require guidance and support. Using the theory and knowledge gained in the previous course, Guiding Children Positively, further positive guidance strategies are introduced and explored in-depth to increase an ECE’s ability to successfully support all children in their care.

Advanced Positive Child Guidance focuses on children living with exceptionalities or exhibiting challenging behaviors and their possibly underlying causes (mental health, physical health, environmental, sensory, confusion, frustration, etc.). Students also explore the cognitive, physical, emotional, social, and behavioural differences often associated of children with varying exceptionalities. Throughout the course, the emphasis remains on the uniqueness of an individual child and the evidence-based practices, which support specific child-centred guidance methods.
