Autism: De-Escalate Meltdowns and Diffuse Explosive Behaviors in Children and Adolescents – Live Webinar
December 7, 2023 @ 6:00 am - 2:00 pm MST
Do you work with children and adolescents with autism who exhibit explosive behaviors that interfere with their ability to effectively and efficiently navigate their environment? They appear willful, obnoxious, over reactive, and unfeeling. They lose control of their ability to cope or regulate their behavior, which can send them spiraling into a gut wrenching meltdown.
Join autism expert Joe’l Farrar, M.Ed., CCC-SLP, BCBA, and learn proven strategies and techniques to help children and adolescents with autism de-escalate before a full blown meltdown ensues, develop self-control and self-management skills to prevent future meltdowns and learn appropriate/replacement behaviors. Dozens of strategies will be taught through dynamic video case examples and demonstrations. “Teach them in the way they learn” will be a mantra throughout the program.
