This workshop teaches participants how to create successful behavioural interventions for children with autism. You will learn how to help children correct their behaviours through video-modelling, how to monitor their behaviours with self-management techniques, how to learn the rules of the world through social stories and comic-strip conversations, and how to see their progress through videotaping. We discuss ways to engage and communicate with children with autism and how to help them gracefully transition from one activity, place or person to the next. In addition, you will learn to combine techniques from behavioural therapy and play therapy for the purpose of replacing a child’s repetitive behaviours with functional skills.
- Detail two videotaping methods that target behavioural issues in young or cognitively impaired children.
- Learn to use social stories and comic book conversations as a way to teach rules and lessons.
- Name 10 ways to engage and transition a child with autism.
- Describe how to put a self-management program into place for a child with high-functioning autism.
