How survival strategies can be misinterpreted

I’ve been thinking a lot this week about how behaviours in school can be misunderstood, its so important that we try and understand the feelings behind the behaviour, rather than making our own judgements and interpretations

  • Hyper-vigilance = being nosy
  • Lack of engagement = being lazy
  • Running off = avoiding work
  • Frequently touching things = interfering
  • Shouting out (poor self-regulation) = being disruptive
  • Lack of empathy = uncaring
  • Inability to understand others feelings = selfish
  • Confrontational = being rude
