Tamsin Grimmer – Poor behaviour… or schematic play?

Wednesday 10th Aug @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Have you ever been puzzled by a young child’s actions or behaviour? Perhaps they empty all the resource boxes onto the floor but never seem to play with anything? Maybe they pour their water over their food and mix it all together? Or despite receiving a lovely gift, perhaps they only want to play with the large box? All behaviour, including schematic behaviour, is communication.

In this webinar Tamsin Grimmer will explore the idea that common behaviours that may challenge and frustrate educators and parents may indeed be schematic play. Tamsin will share her ideas about how to become a ‘behaviour detective’ and unpick the possible reasons why children behave the way they do or what they might be investigating through this play.
