Hi there, I’m Dolly Bhargava,
I completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Speech Pathology from the University of Sydney and a Master of Special Education from the University of Newcastle.
Midway through my career I realised my passion was in supporting children, adolescents and adults with emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD). So I started working extensively with individuals with EBD in a variety of settings such as family homes, childcare centres, schools, respite care, post school options, employment services and corrective services. I have created this online course to equip parents, childcare staff, teachers, youth and disability staff with the knowledge, skills and tools to transform the lives of the individuals they support.
This online course is based on the practical wisdom I have gathered from working with individuals with EBD, their families and incredible staff over the last 20 years. I hope this course EDUCATES - EMPOWERS - ENABLES you.

Parents and carers

Hi, I have been a teacher for 8 years at a high school. I’m continually trying to better my practice as a teacher and learn new strategies to support and engage all student’s in my classes. It was wonderful to do a course where I got resources that provided a range of practical strategies that I can use straightway with my students who have ADHD. Thankyou so much for a wonderful course.
you so much for a wonderful course.
Hi, I have been teaching Year 2 since the start of this year (2019). Before I started this course I was quite stressed as I had been trialling different strategies to help my students with ADHD but it wasn’t having much impact. I am glad I did this course as it has helped me better understand ADHD and figure out realistic ways of managing and preventing behaviours. I feel a lot more confident in making a difference with all my students. Thanks Dolly for a practical course.h impact.

I am hoping that by completing this course I will learn some strategies to develop my own behaviour management skills. I want to reach a level so I can model an alternative approach to difficult behaviours in the classroom. This will assist in creating positive behaviour management in this school. Teaching students with behavioural difficulties is rewarding when you finally begin to see the student behind the behaviour that wants to learn and succeed in their education.
