When working with a child or adolescent with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, or another developmental disorder, meltdowns may occur that may be a result of sensory overload or an inability to self-regulate emotions. This course will provide many practical hands-on strategies to increase positive and acceptable behaviour while decreasing undesirable behaviours. There will be strategies on preventing meltdowns, tantrums, and rage. Suggestions for instructional consequences and self-management techniques to help prevent another meltdown will be provided. Videos and demonstrations using evidence-based techniques and a system of visual supports throughout the day will indicate how to use high focus and interest areas as incentives.
This information and fun-packed course is designed for educators, therapists, counsellors, and all those who are interested in providing support to children and adolescents with ASD, ADHD, or other developmental disabilities.
† The Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW) and the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Social Workers (NLASW) accept CPA-approved CEUs.
