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 gut wrenching meltdown. Join autism expert Joe’l Farrar, M.ED., and learn proven strategies and techniques to help children and adolescents with autism de-escalate before a full blown meltdown ensues, develop self-control and self-management skills to prevent future meltdowns and learn appropriate/replacement behaviors. Dozens of strategies will be taught through dynamic video case examples and demonstrations. “Teach them in the way they learn” will be a mantra throughout the seminar. Walk away with these interventions and more: • Breathe card and emotions chart to develop self-control and self-management skills • Surprise cards, change of schedule cues and transition markers to alleviate anxiety • Video modeling and role playing to improve social/emotional communication • First person stories and visual cues to promote positive behavior • Visual cues, music and software designed to increase attention and focus • Social stories, social scripts and emotions charts to develop self-regulation • SOCCSS, keychain rules and t-charts to target challenging behaviors Objectives: • Discriminate functions of behavior during a tantrum vs. meltdown. • Illustrate the connections and breakdowns between communication, social skills and behaviors. • Employ a breathe 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 consequate targeted behaviors. • Utilize surprise cards, change of schedule cues and transition markers to alleviate anxiety. • Implement a “system” rather than a person dependent intervention.
