Every day, people on the autism spectrum are expected to cope with the challenges of a world which can often seem bewildering and irrational. This can cause high levels of anxiety and stress, resulting in behaviours that can be difficult for other people to deal with and offer significant challenges to professionals involved in the provision of educational, health and welfare services.
This conference features key speakers who will discuss the reasons for certain behaviours in people on the autistic spectrum.
Impact of sensory difficulties and anxiety on behaviour
Strategies to reduce stress and anxiety in classroom settings
Reducing restrictive practices
Contemporary applied behaviour analysis (ABA) for teachers.
