Learning Objectives:

• Learn what Autism is, how it impacts the individual, the family and your role as a Healthcare or Service Provider. This presentation is intended to provide information about how characteristics of ASD influence communication & behavior and how those characteristics result in deficits in self-care for the person living with ASD. Issues reviewed will include skills needed for effective communication and why and when these are impaired for children/youth/adults with ASD, difficulties can occur.

• Learn how to understand Sensory Issues and Adapted Environments. This presentation will include information about sensory differences that may be present in children/youth/adults with ASD. It will include a review of behaviors that may be related to over-responsiveness/under-responsiveness to sensory input as well as sensorimotor integration issues that may impact motor planning and coordination. Information and strategies to support improved participation will be discussed.

• Learn how you can increase compliance – working with families – working with school teams – and at the individual’s home. The link between ASD, behaviors and compliance. This presentation explores basic principles of behavior, including the nature of reinforcement, behavior function, and how behavior is strengthened to increase the likelihood it will happen again (or not happen again).

• Learn how to deal with challenging behaviours and overcome communication barriers when dealing with people with Autism. This presentation will include plans for behavior change with ways to improve caregivers and providers’ overall well-being along with the well-being of the person with ASD; strategies for preventing problem behaviors; and lastly, what to do when problem behavior occurs to reduce the likelihood of strengthening it or escalating, to help insure the health & safety of all involved.
