Strategies to manage behaviours that challenge: a behaviour analysis approach

Supporting children and young adults with autism (2-19 years)

We know that all behaviour is a form of communication. Behaviours that challenge often occur as a result of an individual being unable to express themselves. We appreciate the importance of identifying the reasons behind that behaviour, to enable us to offer the appropriate support for the individual that’s tailored to their specific needs. After completing this course you will have the tools to help individuals with autism communicate in a way that’s right for them.

This 2-day course provides a comprehensive introduction to behaviour analysis and its application to managing behaviours that challenge. It would benefit any professional working with children and young adults with autism, including school staff, social workers, nurses and family support workers. It would also benefit parents seeking further knowledge prior to applying for an ABA school, embarking on a home programme, or those wanting to reinforce their child’s education outside of school areas.
