The Connect the Dots video series teaches you how to address challenging behaviors of young children in four easy-to-remember steps.
The videos are brought to you by Jenn at EC Learn Northern Kentucky.
Connect the Dots

The four steps include:
- Ensuring supportive environments
- Encouraging positive behaviors
- Emphasizing positive discipline
- Embracing unique strengths.
