Children with autism can experience elevated levels of frustration, anxiety and stress often resulting in distressed behaviours. Responding effectively to behaviour remains a concern for parents of children with autism.  Early intervention and planning are important to ensure that children have an array of proactive strategies to defuse rather than escalate a demanding situation. 
This session will examine how the core features of autism can influence the behaviour of children.
Expected Outcomes:
Parents and family members will
• Understand how the core features of autism can influence behaviour.
• Understand the importance of identifying the function of a behaviour.
• Learn practical strategies for recognising early warning signs, making positive interventions and reducing potential triggers.
• Anxiety and its impact on behaviour.
