Working with individuals who have autism can be a very meaningful experience, but it is not without its challenges. With recent reports indicating that 1 in 68 children are on the autism spectrum, an increasing number of care providers are encountering individuals with autism as part of their work and life. While every person with autism is unique, many face similar challenges. The primary focus of this workshop is to provide practical strategies related to working with individuals around self-regulation, learning practices and challenging behaviours. Participants will review a behavioral framework to provide effective strategies for each of these areas, which they will be able to adapt to their own specific environment and context.
Please note: This workshop is not providing training for clinical therapy -- the aim of the workshop is to provide practical strategies for a wide range of helpers who support those with autism.
