Parent Training: Positive Behaviour Support

Parent Training: Positive Behaviour Support

This program helps parents and carers of Autistic children to better identify the causes behind and understand behaviours such as meltdowns, emotional regulation difficulties, difficulties with transitions and physical aggression.

This program runs for 11, 2-hour sessions and is based on positive behaviour support principles. Parents meet with a psychologist or behaviour analyst to learn strategies they can use at home to reduce challenging behaviours. Tasks to be completed between sessions will help to direct and customise the program to ensure each parent or carer is meeting their own personal goals.

On completing the program, parents and carers will have an improved understanding of their unique child and feel better equipped to provide appropriate support.
