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, Timothy 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
• … and more!

“Teach them in the way they learn” will be a mantra throughout the seminar.

• Analyze functions of behavior to determine if a child with autism is having a tantrum or meltdown to inform intervention strategies.
• Implement intervention strategies to target social-communication skills deficits and subsequent behavior difficulties in children with autism.
• Employ a “breathe card” and emotions chart as intervention strategies to develop self-control and self-management skills in children with autism.
• Design optimal therapy/classroom environment to manage overstimulation and sensory breakdowns in children with autism.
• Determine specific intervention strategies to defuse explosive behaviors and de-escalate meltdowns in children with autism.
• Integrate change of schedule cues and transition markers in therapy/classroom to reduce symptoms of anxiety in children with autism.
