Managing Challenging Behaviours in Autism
Sethu in Collaboration with Ummeed Child Development Center, Mumbai organised a 2 day workshop on 'Managing Challenging Behaviours' for parents and professionals working with children with autism.
The workshop was packed with information on understanding behaviours and their functions, and analysing behaviours so they can be better managed. It was loaded with strategies on managing difficult behaviours and why it’s important to stay calm, ignore negative behaviour and praise good behaviour, give choices, keep a 'calming-down' kit ready and to reinforce positive behaviour.
It was also a reminder that visual aids are truly magical while working with children with autism. It was so well explained by Tasneem Jawadwala and Chanchal PAtil (Autism Intervention Therapists from Ummeed). Discussion of various cases gave participants platform to practice what was learnt over the two days! We look forward to a continued partnership with Ummeed over the years!
