09 May 2012 (1:00PM to 4:00PM)
One of the most commonly encountered issues for parents and those working with children and adolescents with ASD is how to reduce/manage their stress, anxiety and/or anger. This session will outline some of the common reasons individuals on the spectrum experience stress and anxiety, the ways this can be exhibited through their behaviour (e.g. anger, aggression, withdrawal) and ideas and strategies to manage stress and anxiety more effectively at school, home and in the community. The presenters will highlight the need for broad ranging supports to reduce stress and anxiety and enhance the individual’s ability to regulate emotions. Case examples will be drawn on to illustrate useful strategies for children and young people of different ages and abilities.
Target Audience:Teachers, Teacher Aides, Guidance Officers & Counsellors, Therapists, Support Workers, Outside School Hours Care Staff, Parents and Carers.
An understanding of ASD is assumed.
