Copyright: 19 July 2016 Description
This intensive one-day seminar provides proven intervention strategies, necessary treatment tools, and behavioral techniques to assist you in analyzing behaviors and actions, identifying consequences for behaviors, and teaching new skills to children, adolescents, and young adults with high-functioning autism (HFA). Take away practical intervention skills for social success, behavior modifications, and conquering difficult co-occurring behaviors that lead to adult success. The following difficult co-occurring concerns must be addressed:
Social and communication skills
Learn about typical psychotropic drugs, including both the beneficial effects and possibly troublesome side effects that these people are administered. We will look at the benefits of pro-social punishment as a novel way to target and alter problematic behaviour.
You will be given the skills you need to foster effective cooperation among physicians, educators, and parents. You will leave this session with the confidence to recognize acts that pose barriers to change, employ more successful consequences for behaviors, and teach new skills to children, adolescents, and young adults with HFA through case studies, video clips, and class participation. Don’t merely manage these people; give interventions that will lead to successful adult independence!
