“You Can’t Make Me:” Strategies for Meeting the Needs of Students with Oppositional Defiance Disorder

May 15, 2024

With Dr. Beverly Johns, Learning and Behavior Consultant

These children test the patience of adults around them. Their behavior challenges our competence. This session will discuss who the children are, comorbidity factors, and how our biases and theirs stand in the way of meeting their needs. Why we are seeing more children with ODD will be delineated. We will also discuss the difference between ODD and Conduct Disorder and the key components of an appropriate evaluation. The remainder of the presentation will be on effective strategies to meet their needs.
