About this event

Taking a preventative, evidence-informed approach to student support increases student engagement with learning, improves teacher and student well-being and reduces behavioural issues.

As part of our guest speaker series, this webcast provides practical examples of evidence-informed proactive classroom practices. You can use these to create positive and productive learning environments where all of your students, including those with complex needs, can thrive.
