Erasmus + course

Managing behaviour in ASD through visual structure

20/Jun/22 – 26/Jun/22

Krakow, Poland

The first aim of this training is to better understand what autism is and what is the cause of challenging behavior in autism? If you can manage the behavior of a child with autism and meet their challenges, then you will be able to work on upgrading their strengths and academic skills. Students with autism are visual learners. If you know how to utilize their visual learning strength you can help in increasing their understanding and reducing stress. Visual support should be the base of the current goals in the education plan of the student with autism. 

This training was created upon practical experiences, latest data in the world, and based on research conducted on parents and professionals who highlighted their needs. The research was conducted under Erasmus projects  (held) in the period from 2015 to 2020 in several European countries.

It will provide you with information and practical skills about management of the behavior of students with autism (Ова правилно е обратно, има многу офс – autism students behavior management) as well as with information and practical skills about developing visual support for students with autism and other disabilities in the classroom or home. 

After the training, you will be able to:

  • understand the underlying reasons for challenging behaviors (the iceberg model and situational aspects)  
  • understand the differences between appearance and functions of challenging behaviors
  • implement direct and indirect assessment to analyze the function of behavior  
  • develop prevention strategies (e.g. adjusting environment, teaching procedures, teaching new skills, using visual support)  
  • develop intervention strategies that will include the description of support when challenging behavior appears and description of alternative behaviors that can replace challenging ones.
  • to identify and discuss the 7 senses and how hyper and hypo sensitivity can present. 
  • to understand how sensory differences can impact behaviors. 
  • to learn strategies and develop “toolkits” for coping with the impact of sensory sensitivities.
  • develop an awareness of the different types of visual structure that can be helpful for individuals with autism: 
    • Physical structure (the environment) 
    • Schedules (what to do and when) 
    • Work systems (how to do it, breaking down an individual task into visual steps) 
    • Visual prompts (objects, photos, pictures, and words)
