Seminar: Solving Behaviour issues in Autism

Solving behavior issues and teaching social skills for students with autism are common educational goals. It‘s typical for these students to demonstrate various social differences or behavior problems that need to be addressed to help that student gain life success.

This program will dig deeper, to look at behavior and social differences and their relationship with specific characteristics of autism. Identifying individual autistic features including communication differences, personal strengths, individual choices and passions will lead to effective long-term solutions. Visual strategies frequently become effective tools to provide short-term learning or lifelong support for mastering behavior and social needs.
