Kids Who Challenge Us: Reducing Anxiety & Defiant Behavior in Students with Autism and Related Disabilities

Presented by Jessica Minahan, M. Ed., BCBA
Hosted by UM-NSU CARD
April 7, 2018
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
View Flyer

Many children with autism and related disabilities experience anxiety. Without intervention, they are at risk for poor performance, diminished learning, and social/behavior problems in school. Understanding the role anxiety plays in a student’s behavior is crucial and the use of preventive strategies is key to successful intervention. Effective behavior plans for these students must avoid the reward and punishment-based consequences from traditional behavior plans and focus instead on the use of preventive strategies and explicitly teaching coping skills, self-monitoring, and alternative responses.
