Facing the Challenge Videos
Facing the Challenge is an instructional, interactive DVD video developed by the Devereux Early Childhood Initiative (DECI) and Video Active Productions in partnership with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The program includes over two hours of training and documentary video designed to help teachers learn how to prevent children’s use of difficult behaviors and how to develop intervention strategies to work with children who use challenging behaviors to meet their needs.

The presentation is divided into 10 sub-chapters on two discs:

Additional Resources

Included on the disc are additional resources such as a pdf Trainer Guide (over 130 pages) with activities, handouts, self-study documents, and ongoing professional development recommendations. The Guide details how the videos can be integrated into extended training sessions. Excerpted chapters from the books Challenging Behavior in Young Children by Barbara Kaiser and Judy Sklar Rasminsky and Classroom Strategies from the Devereux Early Childhood Initiative (DECI) are also included. Finally, teachers get a free classroom activity song from the Songs of Resilience CD package.

Quality Content and Ease of Use

This new training resource takes advantage of DVD technology to provide high quality video and interviews with nationally recognized experts, as well as with teachers and parents of children who use challenging behaviors. The DVD can be played on a DVD player or on a DVD equipped computer, making it suitable for use as part of a formal training session or as a self-learning module.
