They may “hit first and ask questions later”. 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 unable to succeed in school, with peers and at home. Join Andrea Cennington, MSW, LCSW, CYT, and learn to effectively intervene with the emotional and behavioral dysregulation of children with High-Functioning Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Sensory Processing Disorders. Through hands-on activities and dynamic discussion, you will learn techniques, behavioral strategies, problem-solving strategies and brain training exercises to: • Address the sensory, language and executive functioning processing deficits that trigger them • Increase their self-control, social success, emotional control and task completion • Teach flexibility, tolerance, thinking it through and decision-making • Reduce the frequency and duration of their tantrums and emotional outbursts Objectives: • Communicate how sensory, language, and executive skills impairments create fight/flight/freeze and defensive responses that lead to children’s dysregulation and related behavioral issues. • Select the appropriate intervention strategies to improve student skills including self-control, social success, emotional regulation and task completion. • Employ behavior modification techniques and problem-solving strategies to diffuse students' escalated and oppositional behavior. • Implement environmental strategies to accommodate children’s processing deficits and emotional regulation needs. • Utilize problem-solving strategies to develop appropriate behavioral expectations and coping mechanisms for improved self-regulation skills in students. • Apply cognitive restructuring strategies to reduce frequency, severity and duration of children’s behavioral and emotional outbursts.
