They react impulsively and have difficulty expressing what they need or what is frustrating them. We know this child is intelligent, caring and kind, but their behavior doesn’t reflect these positive qualities. These are the children who confuse and frustrate parents and who overwhelm teachers and peers. They struggle to meet basic expectations and are dysregulated and unable to succeed socially and academically.

Through discussion and hands-on activities, you will learn how to create appropriate behavioral expectations and environments that will help children with High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Sensory Processing Disorders.
