Information and strategies to support improved participation will be discussed.

•Learn how you can increase compliance – working with families – working with school teams – and at your client’s home. The link between ASD, behaviours and compliance. This presentation explores basic principles of behaviour, including the nature of reinforcement, behaviour function, and how behaviour is strengthened to increase the likelihood it will happen again (or not happen again).

This presentation will include plans for behaviour change with ways to improve healthcare providers’ overall well-being along with the well-being of the person with ASD; strategies for preventing problem behaviours; and lastly, what to do when problem behaviour occurs to reduce the likelihood of strengthening it or escalating, to help insure the health & safety of all involved.
