Challenging Behaviour and Autism - Making Sense - Making Progress
A Guide to Preventing and Managing Challenging Behaviour for Parents and Teachers
This book’s core message can be summed up in a single sentence: To change a child’s behavior you need to be able to make sense of the behavior, and making sense of the behavior means making sense of the child’s autism. Striving to help parents, teachers and caregivers to do just that, this user-friendly guide offers practical strategies for preventing or managing the challenging behaviors most likely to be encountered when living or working with children on the autism spectrum. Detailed case studies and key tips make this a quick reference that offers a step-by-step framework to enable readers to develop their own solutions.
