Target Audience: Those working with children or adults who have challenging behaviour, learning difficulties including ASC and no or limited language skills.
Many children and adults can only communicate by using their ‘behaviour’ which sometimes can be anti-social or challenging or causes further barriers to making contact with others. This course will explore how we can see beyond the behaviour to understand what is being communicated and how to meet the needs of the person. The course will focus on service users with limited verbal skills and will also explore ways of responding through sensory activities, movement and sounds and rhythms.
The course will demonstrate how behaviour can be analysed, and how making adjustments to the environment and making connections with the person can re-route and alter challenging behaviour in the long term. The course will develop techniques associated with intensive interaction, Sherbourne movement, sensory integration, music, play and drama techniques to help provide person centred responses.
