Autism - Positive Behaviour Support for Children & Young People

Event Date: 
22 Feb 2019 - 10:00 to 15:00


Children and young people with autism can experience high levels of anxiety and stress and this often results in distressed behaviours. Responding effectively to behaviour remains a concern for professionals working within education. Early intervention and planning is important to ensure that children have an array of proactive strategies to defuse rather than escalate a difficult situation. This workshop will explore how core features can influence behaviour and the benefits of Behaviour Support Plans.  It will be delivered by Majella Nugent / Edel Quinn, Middletown Centre for Autism. 

Further sessions of this workshop will be run on 

10am - 3.30pm
