Short description: Students on the autism spectrum and those with behavioural challenges often present with difficulty regulating their feelings and interacting socially. This workshop describes how to handle meltdowns and design effective behaviour plans to prevent these moments and reduce frustration and anxiety. The second day of the presentation details strategies to motivate students to learn, ways to teach social skills, how to generalize skills into the natural setting and increase acceptance and tolerance from peers. Information will be imparted though lecture, interactive exercises, and video clips.
