Autism and Reframing Behaviour 
This training will introduce participants to the ongoing paradigm shift in understanding behaviour from a physiological perspective, drawing on research from neuroscience, psychology, and interpersonal neurobiology. 
It will encourage participants to pause and reflect on their current beliefs and reactions to the behavioural differences presenting within their autistic students. Participants will be supported to consider behavioural differences that are authentic to the autistic child and their invaluable role in maintaining joy in their lives. Furthermore, participants will be supported to understand the underlying factors contributing to distressed behaviours, and how supporting professionals can help. 
Specific topics will include:
Understanding the ongoing paradigm shift in how we think about behaviour. 
Factors that contribute to distressed behaviour for an autistic child.
The important role of neuroception and sense of ‘felt safety’ in promoting a balanced regulatory state.
The importance of professional self-care in the context of supporting an autistic child in distress. 
Participants will: 
Gain an understanding of the ongoing paradigm shift in how we think about ‘behaviour’ presenting in our autistic children and young people. 
To support participants to recognise their inner biases, judgements and beliefs that may be impacting upon how they support an autistic child in distress. 
To understand the underlying and environmental factors contributing to distress and overwhelm within the autistic child.
Understand their role in managing their own regulation as an essential process to the co-regulatory support they provide their autistic students. 
Course Overview
Paradigm shift and reframing our perception of behaviour. 
Underlying and environmental factors contributing to distressed behaviour. 
Proactive and reactive supports when working with distressed behaviour.
