Barb O'Neill, Ed.D.

Hi, I’m Barb. I created Transform Challenging Behavior and this free online learning opportunity because I envision a world where all early childhood professionals are excited to work with children who use challenging behavior and have what they need to do so effectively.


I love working with kids who use challenging behavior…but didn't always! As a teacher I often went home fed up, embarrassed and questioning my career choice.


Then, I studied theater while simultaneously pursuing my Ed.D. in early childhood special education. My world burst open. I saw the power of capitalizing on children’s propensity for play to prevent challenging behavior.


The online courses and conference I’ve created is a way to share with you what I’ve discovered during my 25 years in early childhood and bring you cutting edge ideas from other early childhood experts. 


Let’s transform challenging behavior together.

As featured in...


“Brilliant...very interesting and informative. I'm loving it.”

“I appreciate it so much and it has refilled my tank after having an extremely hard year. I have been in the early childhood field for 26 years now and behavior has really increased over the years. This has been so helpful to me.” 


"You have created such a wonderful way to learn and to think together! Bravo!!"

“I just wanted to say thank you for putting together this together. I learned so much and enjoyed each speaker, including you, Barb! I’ve already started my list of the little 'tweaks' I can make in my classroom.”

“A short WOW...I AM SO HAPPY to have said 'yes'."
