We’ve all heard that behavior is communication, but often we forget to listen for the message. Hearing the message can be even more challenging when it comes from someone with autism. Behavior in autism can look different and happen for reasons that are often misunderstood. Restrictive, repetitive behaviors is a defining characteristic of autism. This training will discuss restrictive, repetitive patterns of behavior and the impact they have on daily function. Hands on activities and video demonstrations will be used to help participants understand the impact of these behaviors at home, in the community and at school. Evidence-based practices (EBPs) will be shared that support the development of skills and to help everyone manage the presence of these behaviors in a more successful way. By the end of the training participants will be able to identify at least two ways behavior looks different in autism and at least two EBPs to use. Note: this course will be offered in two 3-hour sessions.

Intended Audience

Special education teachers, general education teachers, paraprofessionals, administrators, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, parents, and clinicians.
