The Phoenix Cups Framework

An Educators Toolkit to Behaviour

This short course (formally known as The Jayden and Sally Story) will lead educators and teams to new ways of thinking about, responding to, and planning for children's behaviour.

The Phoenix Cups framework is a philosophy in which your team can share ideas, language and understandings about children's behaviour with an end goal of designing better behaviour strategies that will address the underlying function of the child's behaviour. This approach will excite and inspire your team to try something new - that works!

This short course includes a 40 minute video, text lessons, and also downloadable PDFs.
