Functional communication training and manipulation of discriminative stimuli to reduce behaviours that challenge maintained by access to routines

Cat Bradly

ABSTRACT: Ritualistic behaviours and routines are common in individuals with autism, and disruption of these routines can be very difficult to tolerate and may lead to behaviours that challenge. (Risploi et al, 2014) This study looks at how we are supporting a learner to identify and communicate to his staff team when there has been a disruption to his routine that he is finding difficult. In addition, it will look at other environmental adaptions that have been put in place to reduce behaviours that challenge related to routines, and how we have started to increase delay tolerance to these routines.
