Challenging Behaviour:

Challenging behaviour is a sign that something isn’t working for the individual and this may be a need that is not being met or an inability to communicate their feelings. At some point, everyone has behaviour difficulties within a group setting. We can help you to examine the theory behind children’s behaviour, focusing on effective methods to pre-empt and de-escalate challenging behaviour allowing all children to enjoy and benefit from the group.
The workshop is available for anyone working within mainstream activities who are looking to develop their skills when dealing with challenging behaviours for the benefit of all.

Introduction to the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD):

Children with ASD may struggle with understanding social and emotional cues and may not understand that others think differently to them. Many children on the autism spectrum have specific difficulties relating to executive function. These challenges may result in difficult behaviours that impact on not just their ability to participate in learning tasks, but also on social interactions with adults and other children. This workshop helps you gain an understanding of the difficulties faced by children with ASD.

Helping to make your Activity more Inclusive:

We examine the perceived barriers to including children with additional needs into mainstream activities and offer examples of different approaches to adapt the group so all children are involved in their own ability. There is the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice before finishing with a discussion on real scenarios. This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to ensure that all children in their group can access the activities presented.
