What we'll cover in this session:
One of the most challenging things for a parent of an autistic child is helping regulate their emotions, especially when they come out in aggressive behaviours.
Not knowing what to do in those stressful moments can cause parents to feel reactive and emotional themselves, which can unintentionally result in a conflict cycle that makes things worse.
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.

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!
