Behavior Help Wisconsin
Behavior Help Wisconsin assists early childhood care and education providers & families struggling with the behavior of a child. We deliver one-on-one coaching to child care staff so you can have the tools and strategies to reduce challenging behaviors and promote positive ones in your program.
We believe all young children can develop healthy social and emotional skills with time, practice, and targeted support. A child who struggles to communicate her/his emotions in an appropriate way can resort to expressing them through what adults see as challenging behaviors, such as hitting, biting, screaming, and refusing to listen.
By teaching the adults in that child’s life – their parents/guardians and child care provider – techniques and tools to support the child’s social and emotional development, the child will learn new, healthier ways to express emotions, and the challenging behaviors will reduce and be replaced by positive ones.

Please note: Behavior Help Wisconsin is NOT a referral to diagnose or otherwise assess or label a child’s developmental progress. Behavior Help Wisconsin is a program designed to help children thrive in their current child care setting by expanding the skill sets of the adults who care for them.
Behavior Help Wisconsin is currently a pilot project and work is funded for Chippewa, Dunn, and St. Croix Counties. If the child care program is located outside of these counties, Child Care Partnership staff is still available to help. Contact us for more information.
