What we'll cover in this session;
Understand the Thinking Behind the Behaviour
Why that behaviour makes sense to your child. Understanding the difference between Proactive and Reactive aggression.
What's Happening in their Mind and Body
Recognise when their rational brain goes offline and you need to work with their body. As well as understanding how you can influence a situation.
Recognising Trauma and Pain-Based Behaviours
Trauma is about not having the capacity to cope with a given situation. Knowing it will reframe your approach to many situations.
Could it be PDA?
Understanding Pathological Demand Avoidance can be a game-changer. Also called Extreme Demand Avoidance, there are some key changes you can make that will have an immediate impact.
Identifying the Stages of Crisis
Things to look out for and consider at each stage of dysregulation. There are patterns you can interrupt.
Things to say and do as well as things NOT to say and do. We all have a particular parenting style, but there are definitely tools you can use at every stage of dysregulation.
Reducing Future Meltdowns
Baseline strategies for reducing the frequency and intensity of future episodes. This is just as important as in-the-moment strategies. Repairing and rebuilding.
We Get You...
One of the most challenging things for a parent of an autistic child can be helping to regulate their emotions, especially when they come out in aggressive behaviours.
Not knowing what to do in those stressful moments can be really overwhelming and we find ourselves 'giving in' to our child or joining the conflict cycle, with neither strategy helping.
This session will help you to understand what's happening in your child's mind and body during an emotional outburst and leave you with practical, real-world strategies to help yourself and your child to prevent and reduce aggressive behaviour.
We look at why this behaviour makes sense to your child and what you can do to help.
This information session is relevant for parents, carers and professionals helping all-aged autistic children and young adults.
We encourage you to register even if you can't attend live so we can send you the full replay link.

This webinar was extremely informative and useful as an educator in the public school system. I would recommend it to parents who have ASD children and colleagues in the education system. Very worthwhile, I really appreciated the professionalism of the webinar and the strategies provided. Thank you so much!

Any parent, care giver and professionals will benefit from this Webinar... it was a relief to join hundreds of others in learning about how to better understand autistic ASD traits... we need more education to best support children and their families
