*NEW!* Apr 6 & 7, 2020 Understanding Challenging Behaviour

A 2-Day POPARD SuperWorkshop

Location: POPARD Training Facility 4750 57 St, Delta BC
Cost: $25

The characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) often manifest in challenging behaviour, causing school support personnel much distress as they struggle to understand and address the behaviors. Thankfully, there is a large evidence-base of effective instructional strategies to support positive behaviour in children and teens with ASD. This 2-day introductory super-workshop will prepare you to answer questions such as: For what reasons does challenging behaviour occur? How can I find out why my student is engaging in such behaviour? How can I limit the likelihood of challenging behaviour, both before it has occurred and after?
