Course Description :

Do you work with children and adolescents with autism who exhibit behaviors that interfere with their ability to effectively and efficiently navigate their environment? They appear willful, obnoxious, over-reactive and unfeeling. They lose control of their ability to cope or regulate their behavior, which can send them spiraling into a meltdown. And, you feel frustrated, powerless and helpless after each meltdown.

Drawing on over 40 years of professional and personal experience, Kathy will lead you through dynamic discussion, video case examples and demonstrations providing dozens of strategies you can implement immediately with these children/adolescents – in any setting. Walk away with an array of practical strategies for:
• Preventing and de-escalating meltdowns.
• Teaching and promoting appropriate behaviors.
• Providing instructional consequences/replacement behaviors.
• Developing self-control and self-management skills.

Course Objectives are :

• Discriminate functions of behavior during a tantrum vs. meltdown.
• Demonstrate the connections between communication, social skills and behavior.
• Employ a breath card and emotions chart to develop self-control and self-management skills.
• Design optimal therapy/classroom structure to prevent overstimulation and sensory breakdowns.
• Employ SOCCSS, keychain rules and t-charts to prevent, intervene or consequently targeted behaviors.
• Utilize surprise cards, change of schedule cues and transition markers o alleviate anxiety.
• Implement a “system” rather than a person dependent intervention.
