Event description

Description

Suitable for professionals working with primary and secondary school aged young people.

ASD brings to the classroom a unique set of behaviors that will often leave teachers questioning their own practice and approach. This is not a reflection on the teacher, but more about the challenge for teachers to understand the culture of ASD. While we know that all behavior is communicative, it is the idiosyncrasies of the behavior displayed that will often require an almost “forensic” analysis of the context that the behavior occurred. This half day seminar will give an overview of the Culture of ASD, an understanding of the cycle of escalating behavior and preventative measures to decrease the behavior of concern. Using a proactive tool such as the ICEBERG, staff will use case studies to analyse behaviours, recognize what can immediately be addressed, identify what requires further investigating and then develop an Action Plan that will address the behavior of concern
