Autism and the Promotion of Positive Behaviour

Young people with autism can experience elevated levels of anxiety and stress often resulting in distressed behaviours for a variety of reasons, including interaction with the environment. This session will examine how an understanding of autism can influence interactions and thus the behaviour of young people.

Expected Outcomes

Participants will;

•Understand reasons for what we see as inappropriate behaviour

•Learn practical strategies for recognising early warning signs and making positive interventions

•Recognise the “Rumbling, Raging and Recovery” aspects of behaviour and what we as practitioners can do

•Understand the behaviour and anxiety bank account

Course Overview;

•Clarity of information, including expectations and procedures.

•Consistency: A healthy, strong home school partnership is vital.

•Common sense: Remembering that sometimes the most effective is also the most straightforward and easiest.

•Continuation: Keeping the teaching and the positive supports in place to continue to help the young person to develop effective life skills
