Hans Boehm has been working and consulting in the Education and Care Sector for over 15 years. He launched ‘ecpd team’ to take advantage of his experience to reignite passion in education and care through professional practice support, sector collaboration as well as in-home care.

‘ecpd team’ provides customised bespoke support solutions for services and educators working in education and care. Sure, we can provide you the traditional after-hours educator workshop, but we find that true practice improvement goes beyond the one-off workshop.

ACA WA welcomes Behaviour Tonics as our newest preferred supplier.

Established in Perth in 2005, the Behaviour Tonics team has earned their credibility as a leader in behaviour guidance training and coaching for EY Educators & Teachers, travelling from Arnhem Land to Esperance and everywhere in-between to do it. 

Talk Less Listen More is the training program they offer to  educators. The easy to use behaviour guidance techniques can be taught to all staff, resulting in a consistent approach to help children develop more self-control and to respond with more flexibility to frustration and upsetting events. The program draws from attachment theory (how relationships can influence behaviour) and social- learning theory (how children can be taught by those around them about how to self-regulate).  Talk Less Listen More™ methods-based learning is simple, effective and easy to apply in an early years setting.

Contact Brad at Behaviour Tonics for more information. (08) 9285 8100 or
