Autism and the Promotion of Positive Behaviour

Children and young people with autism can experience elevated levels of anxiety and stress often resulting in distressed and inappropriate behaviours. Responding effectively to behaviour remains a concern for professionals working within education. 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 and young people and challenge the term, “Challenging Behaviour”.

Expected Outcomes
Participants will:
• Understand how the core features of autism can influence behaviour.
• Understand reasons for what we see as inappropriate behaviour
• Learn practical strategies for recognising early warning signs and making positive interventions
• Recognise the “Rumbling, Raging and Recovery” aspects of behaviour and what we as practitioners can do
• Understand the behaviour and anxiety bank account

Course Overview
• How the core features can affect behaviour.
• Clarity of information, including expectations and procedures.
• Consistency: A healthy, strong home school partnership is vital.
• Common sense: Remembering that sometimes the most effective is also the most straightforward and easiest.
• Continuation: Keeping the teaching and the positive supports in place to continue to help the child or young person to develop effective habits and more adaptive skills
