The Anxiety Curve; What to do when a person on the autism spectrum is escal...
Wed. 24 May 2017, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm ACST
The workshop recognises that a large portion of people on the autism spectrum have high anxiety levels. By utilising the program ‘The Incredible 5-Point Scale’ staff at Autism SA have developed a clear, comprehensive A4 behaviour plan which has been highly effective when used with individuals on the spectrum in a range of environments.
This workshop is designed for professionals and families and guides participants to explicitly identify what a person with anxiety looks like at the five different levels, and what support staff and families should do when an individual is at these different levels. By having a clear plan, and having specific roles during the escalation phase, we can often prevent or minimise the outcome.
